It work exactely similar with DVB.
I just have to scale the video to fit the DVB spec:

mplayer film.avi -vo mpegpes -vf scale=720:576,lavc

and it work fine. There is another option to keep video aspect if the 
movie is 16/9 because my tv set is 4/3, and I'm looking for it.
Something like -aspect ...

Thanks. Nicolas.
