i just noticed, no subtitles!? not in guide, nor osd nor anywhere! [ok,just recordings screen]
bug? not implemented yet? not gonna be implemented? [sure hope not!]

tons of my shows have no distinguishing traits besides the subtitle! so they all look same..
[i record lots of series']

please tell me that'll change...i prefer to show them everywhere a title gets shown..
[in guide info, library info, guide details popup, and last but not least, osd.]

or is it just a skinning issue where it needs to be added?

DVB subtitles still does not work correctly. When you activate the local subtitles, the picture starts to hang. The text still does not come up. Twice I saw a line of text just right.
Just after I changed the renderer to other.

Other texts I have not yet had time to try.

As far as I know external file subtitiles like srt are not working (at least to the PCH) and there's a problem with teletext subtitles, but I've seen the DVB graphic subtitles working on the PC in a few samples I have. On a positive note, North American style closed captioning does seem to be working well in the analog ts captures on the PC.

DVB subtitles works fine here, but external (like .srt and .sub) and teletext does not work yet. Sub has promised to look at it, but there are many things that needs to be looked at, and only 24 hours a day..;)

I have installed the SAF codec pack with subtitle support for GBPVR.
This works perfectly in NPVR as well.
So on my machine, ffdshow handles all subtitles and it does so for all (that I use anyway) types of files.

Do you get subtitles from SD channels? And do they have Teletext- or DVB-subtitles in Sweden? What about .srt files?

I suspect it is DVB-subtitles.
What I meant was that ffdshow handles .srt, .idx/.sub for avis and mkv files.

pBS meant the subtitile of a show or episode that should appear in the TV guide, etc., not the text subtitles that play along with the video itself.

ie, if the show's Title is "Star Trek", then the subtitle would be the name of the episode, such as "The Doomsday Machine".

yep...was surprised to see no subtitle at bottom of guide screens and info popups..
was a real annoyance with old ver. and was hoping they'd be more global this time around..
[ability to place any of the variables on any screen]

[ability to place any of the variables on any screen]We dont have them in our EPGs here, so I dont think about them too much.

I've added them in a few spots for the next build. (tv guide, show details popup, osd, etc)

Just curious then, how do you differentiate between different episodes of the same show? Is it just part of the title, or part of the description?

excellent..:) it's how i tell if i've seen a show or not, and where they belong in timeline if recorded out of order..
series here tend to use them alot, and sometimes have little inside jokes or the guests noted in them..

oh and several files show no info in video library, and i confirmed they all have it attached and same format..
some dirs only show 2 with info and the rest blank...even tho they all show in pvrx2...
maybe related to the 'root node missing' errors in logs but i can't figure out the difference in the metadata.xml..they all look same to me..

confirmed, but it only shows the error when i try to play said file..?

is this cuz it's trying to find the reference in epg data and can't?
