As most of tv now is digital, I used following to watch tv from a dvb stick

mplayer -ontop -framedrop -nocache -stop-xscreensaver -input
conf=~/.mplayer/input.conf -tv
driver=v4l2:outfmt=yv12:width=720:height=576:device=/dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0:input=0:tdevice=/dev/vbi0:tlang=1:tformat=0:tpage=100:forceaudio:immediatemode=0:adevice=/dev/dsp1:amode=1:forcechan=2:audiorate=44100:audioid=0:volume=75 -dvbin
file=~/.mplayer/channels.conf.ter -vo xv -ao
alsa:noblock:audiorate=44100:device=default dvb://

you can check in the documentation easily what each option means and adjust
as needed.
