(What is a "dvb format file"? Do you have a sample of such 
a file?)

DVB subtitles are only supported in transport streams.

Please test current FFmpeg git head before reporting 
problems here.

Please do not attach screen-shots (unless asked to), this 
is never useful!

(I am not sure if you can convert subrip -> dvbsub, see 
also various dvbsub related tickets on trac.)
