Watching from DVB with Xine-HD

I am able to tune to HD channels by juming through the following hoops:
start azap with -r and some channel (using some channels.conf file I found
Code:
azap -r C81

Then in another terminal start dvbtraffic and keep it going
Code:
dvbtraffic

Then in a third terminal cat the output from my card into a file
Code:
cat /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 > buff.ts

Then in a fourth terminal run xine to see my HDTV
Code:
xine buff.ts


Changing channels is something I fear now, I have to stop azap, run it with another channel, then stop cat (it dies after the file gets to be about 1.1GB anyway), then restart xine. So am I doing this the hard way? Is there any other easy way?

There must be a way to atleast stream to xine instead of catting to a buffer file first.
I tried
Code:
xine -C 30.5 /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0

Xine says there is no plugin to handle /dev/dvb.....
Then I tried this
Code:
cat /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 | xine -C 30.5 stdin://mpeg2

Got an error message saying Value too large....

Any ideas?
