I recording alot of TV-show with my TV-card on my computer.
Before I have no problem with that because it recording in MPEG-1/2 Video and MPEG Audio layer 1/2 with burn in subtitles.
But now when I recording History Channel or Decovery Channel I get H264 - MPEG4-4 AVC and MPEG AAC Audio.
But that is cool, I can convert that too BUT I have big problem with the subtitle that is now teletext.
I have search here and other places and try diffrents tutorial but have never got it to work.
I was thinking to try again this weekend so is that any tutorial that make it easy to convert .TS file with subtitle to MP4 or MKV
I don't care if I have to make it burn in, I just want to watch the show om my Plex system

Subtitle Edit can supposedly open and perform on OCR DVB subtitles embedded inside .ts files. Have you tried that yet? Unfortunately I can't tell you how to use this feature because N. America uses a different type of captioning/subtitling for TV broadcasts.Ignore list: hello_hello, tried, TechLord, Snoopy329

Thanks for the response.
I Think I have try both software but is that any very good and easy tutorial to use?
I don't know if this is useful info, but I have a $30 Ematic on-air recorder. I've had it about a year and it still works good. It records a transport stream (ts) file in whatever resolution that is broadcast by the on-air broadcaster (you can't change that). Here is a 18 second sample with the srt file that is generated by putting the ts file into CCExtractor:
The whole thing usually works flawlessly. I have included 4 screenshots with red circles to detail the settings in CCExtractor. Depending on the show, sometimes I have to tick "rollup captions". In this case, it was necessary to do so, otherwise some of the words repeat. After I get the captions from CCExtractor, I usually put the ts file into Vidcoder to turn into a smaller h264 mp4 file.
CCExtractor won't work (can't get any captions) on the mp4 file from Vidcoder.

@Cazz The poster above is extracting CEA-608 closed captions, not teletext. You don't have wtv files, so don't bother checking that box. The "Rollup" section doesn't apply to teletext, so you don't need to check any boxes there. In other words, much in the post above is not useful.
See the general advice at http://www.ccextractor.org/doku.php?id=public:general:win_gui_usage
Settings pertaining to teletext are on the "Decoders" tab. You can probably de-select the default settings for 608 captions. If you have unwanted line duplication for teletext, the settings under "Teletext Line Duplication" should be used to address them.Ignore list: hello_hello, tried, TechLord, Snoopy329
For PAL TV land - use either ProjectX for standard definition file ie mpeg2 video plus audio plus DVD subs as SRT (in Australia located on page 801 - in Sweden ???) For Standard or High definition Broadcasts ie MP4 H264 video plus audio and subs either VideoRedo or TSDoctor will demux and do a few other fixes. Closed captions are not used in PAL TV countries. DVB subs are text. ProjectX will decode them as SRT or on the fly convert them with colour attributes and a range of subtitle formats. TSDoctor similar, not sure on VideoRedo.
I've tried ccextractor on local TV digital TV transmissions and it really doesn't work. So my guess is the Swedish transmission system is not much different. Ours is based on the German system (with a few changes). TSDoctor and ProjectX were designed for European TV and both work well on Australian files. For what it's worth TSMuxer in demux mode doesn't detect or find subtitles on Australian TV TS files and I doubt if it would on any European TV file. There is no provision to instruct which page number to use in TSMuxer.SONY 75" Full array 200Hz LED TV, Yamaha A1070 amp, Zidoo UHD3000, BeyonWiz PVR V2 (Enigma2 clone), Chromecast, Windows 7 Ultimate, QNAP NAS TS851

I have now try with ccextractor but can't got it to work.
When I got to "Decoders" tab and use "Autodetect teletext" it create a .SRT file but nothing is inside.
if I look inside VLC I can see it use channel 691 so in the "Decoders" tab I write 691 in the "....and extract data from PID"
But then it does not create any .SRT file at all
ok I have try again with TSDoctor and what I can see ut can find the teletext.
Is not so much I can do, I skip the cut and just save as new file.
it create Three files for me, a .TS file and two textfile.
But the .TS file have now no teletext and the textfile is just some kind of log files
Can you upload a small sample somewhere?
Unfortunately I've never found a guide explaining how to use CCExtractor for teletext, and I don't have access to DVB transmissions.
CCExtractor may or may not work for teletext, but it is not as if somebody in the US is responsible for creating this software. Carlos, CCExtractor's developer, is based in Spain, so he should have plenty of DVB material to work with for testing the portions of his program that deal with teletext. He has noted that he based his teletext processing on Petr Kutalek's telxcc.Ignore list: hello_hello, tried, TechLord, Snoopy329
Right now I try something
I use TSDoctor to remove the TV advertising and I have find how I can extract subtitle from TS file to SRT with help of ProjectX
Now I going to try how I can create a finnish MKV file with subtitle
I have notice it extract the subtitle with ProjectX but no timeline?
every line start with
00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:00,000

I upload now a Little clip of my TS file that I have cut with TSDoctor but it take a little time
Here it is

Sorry if I replay to myself but it feel wrong to edit the last one all the time
I did find how to extract the subtitle from TSDoctor to SRT and the right now and now it works.
I extract the TS to TS and SRT after that I did use mkvmerge to create a MKV file and I also remove the subtitle inside the TS file.
I only use TS and SRT inside the MKV file if I just want to watch the episode on my Plex system.
If that is something I like to save then I use VidCoder to convert TS to something and then add it inside a MKV with the subtitle.
I wonder if I can create a script that use TSDoctor to extract the SRT file.
Did find that it can run script to Control TSDoctor so now I have a script that make a MKV file with TS and SRT inside

Here is a quote from TS-Doctor's FAQs:
3.5 Is it possible to start the TS-Doctor with parameter (command line)?
Even the ts-doctor is a graphical application, it can be also used by command line for batch processing.
For [Input Filename] wildcards can be used, too. For example *.ts oder REC000.*
If wildcards are used for [Input Filename] then [Output Filename] will interpretted as folder.
TSDoctor.exe [Input Filename] [Command] [Option] [Output Filename]
Command: AUTOFIX (starts automatically the fixing of a file)
Command: AUTOCHECK (starts automatically the checking of a file)
Command: AUTOBATCH (starts automatically the batch processing of the internal batch list)
Option: CROP=X (Crops the beginning of the file X MBytes on opening)
Option: LOG (Creates a log file)
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Cypheros\TSDoctor\TSDoctor.exe" "D:\recordings today\*.ts" Autofix "D:\archive\"
