using mencoder straight from cvs:
$ mencoder -of mpeg -mpegopts format=dvd:vbitrate=9000 -o digital.dvd
-oac copy -ovc copy digital.ts
(and the same for the other two, with the exception that hdtv.ts must be
I patched the bitrate because the nominal 15000 in digital.ts (that
seems to be fake) is not correct for dvd.
Besides a resolution of 528x480 is not valid either, but most modern
players will accept it, so re-encoding
is not worth the hassle.
For hdtv the basic command is:
$ mencoder -of mpeg -mpegopts format=dvd:vbitrate=9000 -o hdtv.dvd -oac
copy -ovc lavc \
that you can extend how you like best.
Next you can pass the .dvd files to dvdauthor.
