I use VDR to record TV and Radio for me and then use the following to 
convert a VDR recording to an mp2 file:
# vdrsync.pl -audio-only -o . ???.vdr

If I want to use this with my MP3 player then I use lame to re-encode as 

There are many alternative ways of doing this, for another example see

There are many Linux tools which understand DVB & MPEG and vary from 
complete media-center solutions to command line tools. e.g. VDR, MythTV, 
mplex, dvbstream, mplayer, mencoder, transcode, mjpegtools. I'm afraid 
you'll have to spend some time googling and experimenting to work our 
what works best for you.
