When I first conceived the question, I thought it was going to be 
simple. Can I capture close captioning with MythTV?

A bit more thought showed that the question was more complex. I want to 
preserve close captioning thought this process:

1. Video capture with a Hauppauge PVR 250 and MythTV.
2. Remuxing the video with tcextract and mplex (dvdauthor doesn't seem 
to like the "raw" mpeg2 files.)
3. Converting the video to DVD with dvdauthor.

Anyone know if I can preserve the close captioning through this process? 
What steps would I need to do so?
