You cannot remux mpeg that's soft-telecined with mencoder. It does not
work. Why are you trying to remux anyway?? Just dump the whole thing
with -dumpstream and cat the two titles together. Or if you want to
encode, just do:

mplayer ..... dvd://2 dvd://3

to encode them both together. You probably want to rip the dvd anyway
if it's telecined; otherwise it will look like crap when you watch it.
