I found how to do it but it's way too cumbersom:

the cvs version of ProjectX supports HD subtitles, *but* the sup 
exported subtitles aren't readable neither by suprip  (not subrip!) nor 
by BDSup2Sub, so I additionally export to sub format and use BDSup2Sub 
to convert it to a valid sup, that can then be processed by suprip.

Both ProjectX and BDSup2Sup, being java programs, work under Linux, but 
suprip is windows only.
