I have a PVR-250, so I have mpeg2 files.  To make things obvious, I 
renamed the files to .mpeg when I moved them Recorded Shows to Videos. 
That, of course, has nothing to do with mplayer's ability to read them, 
though.  I'm guessing you'll need to transcode those files, though I'd 
probably try xine first to see if that works, as that would be a lot 
faster than transcoding gigabytes of data. :)
