I have recorded a TV-movie with my SAT-recorder on harddisk. The movie is in french and has subtitles in several languages. I cutted the ts-file and removed all subtitles except german wit tsdoctor. Sometimes later I noticed that the subtitles come about four seconds too early. Unfortunately I had deleted the original file until then.

ffprobe shows the following output:

I can imagine that this problem could be solved with ffmpeg, but don't know how and I didn't found anything that would help me.
