Make sure you have all the proper codecs installed and use VirtualDubMod to extract/seperate the streams.

You can use MKVExtractGUI to extract all parts from the MKV (video, audio, subtitles).

You can then encode these, but...

To my knowledge TMPGEnc Xpress will not work with the latest version of ffdshow.
(and older versions [from 2003/2004 etc] of ffdshow don't have support for H.264)

This means that encoding H.264 with ffdshow & TMPGEnc is not possible. You can
bypass this problem by using AviSynth, but in that case just using my "v2" guide in the
sticky in this forum might be easier, unless you don't mind writing the AviSynth script yourself.

Btw, the original sticky thread for encoding DVD with TMPGEnc Xpress only covered the
conversion of AVI files -- MKV was not covered in that guide.

Extra notes:

- AC3 audio is already DVD ready. So you don't need to convert it to use it on a DVD.

- As for the video, you can open the MKV straight in AviSynth using the DirectShowSource() command.
(this might be important as succesfully extracting the H.264 video to an AVI file might be rather tricky)

im so lost on what you guys said...

ive never used MKVExtractGUI and avisynth before. i think i did with avisynth once but it was for something else.

you see where the audio and video source is? i have no problems with those.. but its the subs im concerned about. i tried to convert it earlier but there was no subs showing on the preview. is there anyway i can get the subs to convert along with the video? and i think they're softsubs... im not too sure.

If they're softsubs, then they should be auto-loaded using VSFilter if ffdshow
is used to decode the video.

If ffdshow is not used, then... there is no way to load them with TMPGEnc Xpress.
The only way would be to... write an AviSynth script to load them "manually".

I can't give you an example of such a script now, as I'm typing this from a computer
where I don't have access to the souces for the scripts I wrote for the sticky thread.

i dont have much experience writing a script for avisynth... an example of doing the subs manually would be ncie i guess.

Code:
LoadPlugin("C:\DVDStudio\Scripts\Apps\Tools\vsfilter.dll")
DirectShowSource("C:\video.mkv",fps=29.97,convertfps=true)
TextSub("C:\subtitles.ssa")
Adjust the path to VSFilter to where it is installed on your HD (use the Windows Search if necessary).
Also adjust the video and subtitle filenames and paths obviously. You may also need to adjust the
framerate (fps) to whatever framerate your source video is.
