It has been a very useful program to me.

Only if you want something other than MPEG-2 ;) If you want to keep
the data as MPEG-2 instead of decoding and re-encoding to another format
then all that needs to be done is re-multiplex the elementary streams
produced by the 'demux' command in ProjectX.

Hmmm - I thought it worked for creating new TS streams as well. Seemed
to work the one time I tried that (by mistake ;)).

It depends what format you are creating. If you're creating a
.mp4 file then you can use 'mp4creator' (from mpeg4ip.sf.net) to
combine mpeg-4 video and audio streams into a .mp4 file. If you're
creating some other format then a different multiplexing or combining
program would be needed. If you're creating a MPEG-2 program stream
then there are programs available which can do the multiplexing. If
you're creating a ".ogm" file then the programs from ogmtools can
be used, and so on.
