I was just thinking the same thing, for us with problems it would be
nice to have an option to view the file using mplayer instead of the
built in player. I have problems watching anything recorded from abc in
hd. The audio does not work. Using oss (/dev/dsp) I get muted audio from
the right speaker only. If I try ALSA:spdif I get an error message about
channel count %i: number of channels: 6. If I try ALSA:default I just
get pops and hisses. Mplayer using a simple -ao alsa plays the file
perfectly through all my speakers.
Maybe a menu option on the popup menu that is displayed when you press
the right arrow on a recorded show that will let you play in external
