you need to pass -r to szap to get data from /dev/dvb/adapterX/dvr0
e.g.: root/dvb-apps/util/szap/szap -r Euronews
and then in another terminal: mplayer /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0
Im not sure how critical/uncritical the not implemented DISEQC_BURST cmd 
is, as I have almost no idea about that sat/diseqc stuff ..?

You can try the patch I posted here [1], with which you actually only 
get a FE_HAS_LOCK if the box has tuned successfully to a channel.
(hm although I dont know for sure if this works the same on your 
dec3000s as on the dec2000t :/)
