ProjectX for the first time, select a short TS file and try all the options and see what happens - you can always make a copy of the X.ini file that sets all the options as a backup.

For those wanting a simple and fast solution to extract Teletext subs from .ts files, I have written my own programme (that is a GUI for Pirayen's command line DVBTextSub) - you can install it from this page.
If you already have .Net 3.5 installed you just need to click the "launch" link, otherwise hit the "Install" button to download and install .Net 3.5.
It is somewhat quicker and simpler than ProjectX.
PS. VideoRedo V4 (new HD version) now adjusts subtitle timecodes when editing.

Thanks for that - I have posted your link on the Beyonwiz forum (Australia) Just tried it on a local program (page 801) and works quite quickly. http://www.beyonwiz.com.au/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?p=92401#92401BeyonWiz T3 PVR ~ Popcorn C200 and A-500 ~ Samsung ES8000 65" LED TV ~ Windows 7 ~ Yamaha RX-A1030 ~ QnapTS851-4G

For graphics based subtitles you can also use ProjectX (even for HD, though it cannot decode H264), but with adequate configurration.
I have found the solution here (thanks to the author) :
Two parameters (Menu "Preferences / Subtitles) are particularly important :
- IRD color model for DVB subtitles ; the default value is 4 colours which gives awfull results. Choose a model depending of the boradcaster (In France, for the terrestrial DVB, I have chosen "UKFreeView" which gives excellent résults)
- parameter "Additional export as VobSub" must be checked.
The latter gives you a .sub/.idx file that can be used with most players in conjunction with your video file or multiplexed in .mkv files.
The problem is that, often, your subtitles will be out of sync. This can be easily fixed with "SubResync" (included in VSfilter package). Furthermore, SubResync gives you the possibility to extract a .srt file (text based) by OCR.
This thread seems to help with exactly what I am after.
I have a load of digital broadcast files form which I want to cut out all the adverts (and the padding from the being and the end), correct any errors and preserve the original subtitles.
I know that Project X can do all of this but not really got to grips with how to use it.
I would be really grateful for some instructions plus advice on what settling to use.
The resulting file does not necessarily need to be a .ts files, just as long as the original video, sound and subtitles are there - an MKV, for example, would be fine.
Thanks very much.
Have a look at my guide (under my sig) and just substitute the correct page number for Australia's page 801. ProjectX in demux mode is the best program for doing this as it cleans up any transmission errors as well as extracting the native tracks.
I shall give your guide a whirl tonight.
Just to double check - if I follow the instructions, will I end up with an identical file but with all the adverts gone?
I'm also in task to extract some text subs from TS Mpeg.
I've already tried everything without success.

- MKVToolnix won't accept it, once it isn't MKV file.
- CCExtractor process it, but outputs a zero SRT file.
- SubtitleEdit also won't accept to import as a MKV.
- eac3to says:
TS, 1 video track, 2 audio tracks, 1 subtitle track, 1:33:42, 24p /1.001 1: h264/AVC, 972x720 24p /1.001, 10 bits 2: AAC, English, 2.0 channels, 24kHz 3: AAC, Portuguese, 2.0 channels, 24kHz 4: Subtitle (PGS), Portuguese The source file doesn't contain any subtitle tracks in this format. <ERROR>
- ProjectX is the better hope to solve this, but it shows this error screen:
- XMedia Recode can see the subtitle and offer two ways to handle it:
Render -> DivX XSUB codec
Convert mode goes to crash the program at the beginning of the task.
Render mode gives this crap result:
- VLC shows correctly the subtitle, but outputs nothing, if Convert/Save process task is tried.
I know there is a valid subtitle stream inside TS file.
So, how to grab and put my hands on it?
(I mean, SRT format or other text format).Thank you.
I found out that subtitle inside that TS file is not a text stream, but a sup one.
Searching more, I found tsMuxerR and it could strip out the subtitle as a SUP file.
Now, I'm involved to OCR that SUP to convert it to SRT.
I like SubRip, but it reads only SUB files, not SUP ones.
Instead, I'm using SupRip, a small program that deals with SUP files.
But it is not so smart than SubRip and I have to type too much.
I tried to convert SUP to SUB and I use BDSup2Sub, but generated images are useless and not recognized by SubRip.
Anyone has a suggestion to OCR SUP files?
Or to convert in a way to SubRip recognizes the file?
I use BDSup2Sub with default parameters, but SUB and IDX was not recognized by SubRip.
In fact, it reads the file, but images are completely messed.Thank you.
It's such a pity that ProjectX won't handle H264 formats and nobody has attempted to rewrite ProjectX to be more universal, however I believe VideoRedo can handle your file - I don't have it so can't help there also TS Doctor latest version should be able to do it. If you an upload the first 30 seconds or so some of us can have a play with it.
Subtitle Edit is the best because it uses tesseract. Install it and drag and drop the file. In the OCR window that pops up, choose tesseract OCR and click to download the latest files for that language.
Tesseract will still make a few mistakes, so you can tell it to ask you for all unknown words. Words it can not find in its dictionary. Also click on the italics box if the subs have italics, or else it will mess up.
