I couldn't get the subtitles - here are the commands I used:
(play to screen)
mplayer dvd://1 -chapter 27 -sid 0

(write to disk - the output file is just video/audio, no subtitles)
mencoder dvd://1 -chapter 27 -sid 0 -o title27.avi  -vf expand
-1:-1:-1:-1:1 -oac  copy  -ovc copy

Is there some other option I need to give mencoder to have it render
the subtitles?
Reading the man page, it seems to suggest that -vf expand should be
used, which I did
but maybe I did not use it correctly?
