First, what kind of card do you have? A simple raw YUV card? A DVB-T
card? An analog MPEG-encoder?
Second, is your card set-up and working? ie. Can you watch TV with
other apps like tvtime? If not, it's a basic Linux question, having
nothing to do with MPlayer. Find a Video4Linux how-to.
Once that's working, it should be simple to use MPlayer, depending on
the type of card. eg.:
mplayer tv:// -tv chanlist=us-cable:channel=(channel)
