    Hello, i have some channels from viasat that is missing Nordic language subtitles. I've seen in my All Channels list i have some different "data only" channels and one caught my attention: ID Europe Nordic Subs, is it possible to recive subtitles from another channel than the one im watching? If so... how?

    No, it is not possible. I guess that "hack" from the broadcaster's side is to try to limit the settop boxes to are able to show the subtitles to broadcaster's own selection.

    It would be quite big refactoring what implementing such feature would require - lot other than subtitle code would be needed to be modified as well.
