I run ProjectX under linux using the sun 1.5 jvm.

  java -jar ProjectX.jar

I only ever use ProjectX with the gui as I use it to to cutting too
which I haven't figured out how to do with mythtv!

I'm currently using version 0.90.3 - maybe you could try that?

What about different recordings - do they have that problem too?

It is a bit cryptic!  However the default settings work well for me.
I just choose demultiplex, and PX produces output files for all the
PIDs in the stream.

You'll see in the GUI that PX can output loads of different subtitle
formats - there is hopefully one you can use!

I've managed a test DVB->DVD with subtitles using pxsup2dast.c from
