 The number of output formats is a function of the input format. There are 
more output formats for NTSC input formats than for PAL input formats.

 As per the README:


    Subtitling with transcode is pretty much a hit or miss affair. Some DVDs
work extremely well, and some generate awful results. If you find that
MythDVD transcodes a title with subtitles badly, you are encouraged to try
and use transcode from the command line. Hopefully, future versions of
transcode will offer more robust subtitling capabilities.
