[linux-dvb] Extract teletext subtitles from VDR recordings using dvbtextsubs

I've downloaded dvbsubs from the CVS yesterday and tried it to extract
some teletext subtitles from a recording I have made with VDR - but it
didn't work.
I think that's the same problem as I've had last time I tried it and
that must have been maybe a year ago ...
Is there anyone out there that's using dvbtextsubs?
I've noticed that
Dave Chapmans homepage http://www.linuxstb.org/ have been down for quite
a long time now so I don't know if Dave have retired maybe.

The problem I have with the extracting och the subtitles is that since
version 0.0.4b of the ttxtsubs-plugin for VDR (something changed between
0.04 and 0.0.5) dvbtextsubs doesnt find any subtitles, it exits almost
directly after I've startd it so I don't think it's scanning the whole
recording, maybe it's just checks the first part and if there's nothing
intresting there it exits?

Well, if anyone has anything to say I would be really happy
