[FFmpeg-user] srt subtitle to dvbsub for mpegts stream

I am transferring mkv video files from my pc to my TiVo using the mpegts
container format.

I’m trying to find a way to include optional subtitles in the stream but
haven’t been able to find a way to convert text subtitles to raster image

I would have thought that there was a way, considering
https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/HowToBurnSubtitlesIntoVideo has a way to
overlay text subtitles directly on the video and reencode it. It would seem
that I should be able to create a new stream with the encoded text.

I’ll include specific commands that I’ve tried if makes a difference in any
suggestions. I’m using a recent build of FFMPEG on windows, but can run on
a different platform to figure out what’s necessary.

Thanks, Wim.
