I found that occasionally failed - generating output that neither of the
*mplex tools could handle IIRC - probably due to errors in the stream
caused by less than perfect DVB-T reception. ProjectX has a much higher
success rate.

What about mencoder? It's always been very good at handling errors, it
can obviously handle .vdr input, and MPEG output has been working
properly for the last few versions. But I don't know whether it would
convert PES to PS in the process.
