IMHO vdrsync does MPEG-PES to MPEG-PS conversion without any 
problems. I've used and 0.1.3PRE1 (0.1.3pre1 does handle 
errors much better, i had problems with mplex with some broken 
stream). YLE (or digita?) had broken encoder about for a month, and 
mplex/vdrsync had problems with that stream. Then I tried 
0.1.3PRE1 and i got working MPEG-PS for DVD, no sync problems etc.

So for me, vdrsync has done things _MUCH_ better than PVAStrumento 
etc. ;)
