Can't Turn Off Strange Text With Parenthesis (1 Viewer)

I was trying to make Subtitles work. I don't know what I did but now the movie I was testing "A Good Year" has text showing up at the top of the screen While the 20th Century Logo Animation is going at the very beginning, it says (drumroll). It continues, with things like (Woman singing), and so on. Even more exasperating, I played this movie Friday without all that text.

What the heck is it, and more importantly how do I turn it off? It does not appear on other movies.

As for subtitles, a response to an earlier post says just press the Subtitle button on my remote. I have a VRC-1100 and can't find any button that turns on/off Subtitles, and none are so labelled. For that matter, none of the buttons work anyway, such as Play, Pause, Stop, FForward, etc. And in MP configuration I did choose MCE remote.

Any help is most appreciated, at this point!
