There are some (slightly outdated) instructions at


and also some more in the forum on the same site, unfortunately mostly 
in german. But most of the buttons have verbose "help bubbles" with them 
that appear if you point on a button.

You can just add them all by using "file"->"add". Projectx will put them 
together in one file. To put them together you could e.g. select "demux" 
and then press the "go" button. PX will generate two files named 
"{filename1}.mpv" and "{filename1}.mp2" containing video and sync'ed 
audio. Put them together using mplex or tcmplex if you want mpeg2. Also 
you could first reencode them to mpeg4 (using mencoder or the like).

Demux is for demultiplexing the stream to the seperated video and audio 
streams. They are synchronized and error-corrected afterwards. With the 
other options you can convert them to various other container formats, 
i.e. formats feasible for VDR or transport streams, but the streams will 
not be corrected and sychronized.
