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.
