Could someone over here advise me on the extraction of Digital TV (DVB) Subtitles from UK Freeview (DVB-T) streams?
I'm aware of using ProtectX and have had success with this in the past. I however had to reformat my PC and now cannot get the ProjectX Settings right. I could someone recommend the ideal settings? With my current settings, it demuxes the streams well, however when loading the extracted sub file into subrip (for OCR conversion to srt, the subtitle image isnt clear meaning the OCR doesnt work.
Like i said, i got this working perfectly in the past, so i know it works. I have a feeling i just have an incorrect setting.
One (bonus) things i'd like to know is is there a(n easy) way to keep the colours used in UK DVB subtitles when creating the srt file? Is there an OCR tool that can somehow detect the colour and do the formatting code automatically? (again, this isnt needed, but would be an added bonus.
Also, I now also have a DVB-T2 PC tv card for Freeview HD (UK) signals. Is there a tool i can use to extract the DVB Subtitles from these HD TS files? I know ProjectX doesnt work, so that is out of the question.

ProjectX a go. I hope that works coz other than that theres not much config info in there.
Does CCExtractor support non-Teletext subtitles though (ie does it support those used on DVB-T)? I was under the impression it didnt.
I notice the guide also mentions checking Syncing. To be honest, ive never had any problems with syncing when I used ProjectX to demux and extract the subs before (when the config was correct) so I'm hoping the method described in the guide doesnt bring these problems in.
This is the X.ini file to be found in ProjectX for Australia conditions - basically the same except for the page number for the UK (in Australia it is 801).

Application.ActiveDirectory= full path of where your TS file is locate or REC file for Topfield or can be left blank
OptionPanel.StartPath.Value= insert here the full path to where you want to save your files or leave it blank
SubtitlePanel.TtxPage1=801 Change this (801) to the UK page number
See under my sig some suggestions for setting up ProjectX - as far as I know it is the only program that will extract subs (using demux mode)BeyonWiz T3 PVR ~ Popcorn A-500 ~ Samsung ES8000 65" LED TV ~ Windows 7 64bit ~ Yamaha RX-A1070 ~ QnapTS851-4G
Subtitles on DVB-T (digital terrestrial TV) in the UK are picutre based IIRC, similar to DVD. I think its called DVB Sub or something like that,
This is part of ProjectX Presettings subtitles does this help?
A few years ago I was a member of the UK Topfield Forum and who advised using ProjectX for UK Digital TV but clearly there have been changes as I have seen a few H264 files recently. Could you post a MediaInfo file of one of your files so I can add it to my archive collection. Many thanks.
