I encode TS streams all the time (actually I have a frontend which will
multiplex the different streams in the TS stream into one Matroska
file). I get those transport streams off the Hauppage DVR (it.s h.264
encoded to start with). So I am certain that mencoder supports h.264 TS
streams. What platform are you encoding on?
A last resort would be to demultiplex with tsmuxer, encode separately
and multiplex the result but that has some drawbacks.
