    Subtitles are always sent with a small delay, depends on the broadcaster (between, 0.2 seconds up to 5 seconds). So the first subtitle can appear only after that delay is met (as we don't have a time machine that would fetch us the subtitle bitmaps from the past, before the channel was tuned :D).



    It aplies all the HD channels. There was a time window when no subtitle bitmap had still wrong size info and some optimization code was causing a crash.

    Just a report back for the devs. Since the fix in recently released svn - DVB-subtitles are working perfectly on all channels including BBC HD, not had a single crash since upgrading.

    Thanks so much for fixing this problem. WAF goes up another notch.

    i have the latest release version of mp (1.0) - i am holding back on using the svn's, but i a could really do with a fix for dvb subs/hd crash. i don't want to disable hd channels, but my wife likes to use subtitles as often doesn't hear the telly above our daughter! On my configuration, recorded programs use my dvb-t tuner (rather than my dvb-s tuner which has the HD channels on) as priority which doesn't use teletext subs. I know it is possible to go into the settings and disable dvb subs when an HD channel with dvb subs is viewed, but it is a bit long winded! - as the 1.0.1 release is delayed, is there a temp fix? - i tried the DVBSub2.ax file but it stopped me getting any dvb subs at all (so i guess it is for an svn release) I will be putting my donation in as soon as i can use this important feature, as apart from this- mp is top notch!

    Unfortunately updating DVBSub2.ax is not enough, few things inside MP has been changed aswell. 1.0.1 release shouldn't be that far away.

    Hi Tourettes,

    Just a quickie.
    Could you confirm that the patch you provided to solve this problem is also incorporated in the new 1.0.1 release?

    Thanks,

    Peter
