I am personnally using VLC ( http://www.videlon.org/vlc/ ) to record
from my dvb-tuner directly to mpeg-ps and VLC is also able to transform
an TS-file to PS but this PS is not yet compatible for DVD-burning
(wrong encapsulation).

You may look here 


for a source package of dvb-mpegtools which you may compile and install
(outside a Debian package). There is also the small program replex which 
is also able remultiplex an MPEG2 TS into a PS for DVD. Maybe that is 
the good choice for you. It seems very easy to compile without need for 
other libraries.

Greetings, Klaus.
