I got .tsp's (mpeg format) playing in MPlayer/Ubuntu. It's extracted from DVR HDD, onto disks formatted NTFS, and mounted with NTFS-3g.
Video is great. Audio changes to at least 3 channels. One channel was good audio, but included a 'narrarative' of the action. Another channel played good audio only (commercial). A third channel, during the primary video (movie), prompted language selection of the playing device.
I think this is a codec problem...
What do I need to do?
(the file plays properly in 'Media Player Classic' when Windows is booted)

mplayer problem. Pressing # should cycle through the audio channels,
from the man page
-aid <ID> (also see -alang)
Select audio channel (MPEG: 0-31, AVI/OGM: 1-99, ASF/RM: 0-127, VOB(AC3): 128-159, VOB(LPCM): 160-191, MPEG-TS 17-8190). MPlayer prints the available audio IDs when run in ver‐
bose (-v) mode. When playing an MPEG-TS stream, MPlayer/MEncoder will use the first program (if present) with the chosen audio stream.
-alang <language code[,language code,...]> (also see -aid)
Specify a priority list of audio languages to use. Different container formats employ different language codes. DVDs use ISO 639-1 two letter language codes, Matroska and NUT
use ISO 639-2 three letter language codes while OGM uses a free-form identifier. MPlayer prints the available languages when run in verbose (-v) mode.
