You would need a machine capable of capturing the analog lines that carry the closed captions. My Panasonic DMR-E20 does that. It captures CCs perfectly. That's what I would do, because the subtitles on a VHS are embedded in the picture. Then after you have that captured to MPEG-2, you would need to extract the subs from the stream. I don't know exactly how to do the process, but probably using TMPEG "demux" tools, you'll see all the streams in the captured MPEG-2 file including CCs. So then it would be a matter of extracting the RAW CC stream and converting it to useable subs to be encoded. Check WinSubmux and other subs programs around. Hope this gives you some ideas

Thanks Kwag, I guess I don't have a luck as I don't have that machine.

Maybe with a capture card will do , but I'm not sure which could possibly capture CC
Here's some technical docs: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...edcaptions.asp
Look at the end: "Capturing Closed Caption Bitmaps
Maybe using Microsoft's GraphEdit ( Docs and tutorials at doom9.org ) is the ticket
