Since I am partially deaf, how do I enable closed captions/subtitles in MediaPortal v0.2RC2? I cannot seem to find it in the program and documents.

Thank you in advance. :)

YOU HAVE TO ENABLE SUBITITLES IN VOBSUB OR FFSHOW FILTERS. YOU DO THAT OUTSIDE THE MEDIA PORTAL. IF YOU USE SPECIAL CHARACTERS IN YOUR SUBTITLE FILE (DEPENDS ON THE LANGUAGE) BETTER USE FFSHOW (AND UNINSTAL VOB SUB, ALTHOUGH IS ADVISED TO USE IT BY MEDIA PORTAL).
THEN PUT THE SUBTITLE FILE (.SRT, .SUB, ETC:) WITH THE SAME NAME AS YOUR MOVIE IN YOUR MOVIE FOLDER. IT SHOULD THEN WORK IN WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER ALSO.
AT LEAST IT WORKS FOR ME. WHEN THERE IS NO SUBTITLE FILE, MEDIA PORTAL JUST DOESN't SHOW IT.

dpirs, no need for the caps, ant said he was partially deaf, not blind :)

Also, I think ant was talking about subtitles for television, which wouldn't be a separate subtitle file but embedded in the television transport stream.

Unfortunately I cannot help you with this feature, but perhaps enabling subtitles as dpirs said is part of the issue?

Oh dear, I'm afraid, CC is not supported. We got no dev who could do it in the US. CC are used in USA only, afaik. And those of us who could do that are located in Europe. :cry:

Darn it!! I guess no MediaPortal for me then. It seems like software PVRs don't have this support. :(

What do folks in Europe use then for analog TV then?

Are there any other Windows PVRs that do? And no I do not want to install XP Media Center.

Well, for some analog programmes you got subtitles via teletext. But that's very rare. DVB is the way to go in Europe, in some countries they use subtitles there. But that's also very, very rare. Looking quite bad for subtitles then. (Mainly depends on the countrie. If e.g. 2 languages are used officially, chances for subtitles are not that bad.)

Not that nice for you, though... I'm sorry, I'd wish I could tell you something more positive on this...

Thanks for the info. Now I know how to create logs. I remapped the keys and, for the moment, after using MP2 several times, they function well. If the mapping disappears again, I'll send you some logs. Thank you!

This is not possible, only on the bluray present subtitles can be selected. Same as above. Audio streams can never be selected apart from the merged ones. You'll have to use tools like the mentioned Media-Buddy to achieve that. Subtitles of local media can be placed into the same folder (with the same name) into the video file. You...

Thank you. I had a look at that part of the menu, but there's no option for DVB subtitles. Probably it has something to do bit some issue of MP2 with PGS subtitles that I've read in several posts. Although I don't know if DVB subs are also PGS subs. I guess that it will be fixed in future versions of MP2. Anyway, if somebody is...

I had the same feeling about MP1, nothing was working out of the box, it was full of hardcoded dependencies and bugs. That’s how I came to MP2 and I’m very happy with it ;)
