Thank you.  I did not realize MPlayer was different than the built-in
Media Player.  It does play MPEG2 files.  It is not playing the .tivo
files, while playing from my internal SD card has little digital
squares jumping around and the audio is squeally.  I'm thinking that I
may try toning-down the recording quality on the Tivo which may make
the frame rate more manageable.  Thank you in advance for all help!

Maybe you are playing a non-interleaved stream/file or the codec failed?

For AVI files, try to force non-interleaved mode with the -ni option.

Cannot sync MAD frame
