I am based in Hong Kong and there is an English channel called Pearl TV. When I switch to this channel, the subtitles menu give me the option of Chinese but not English. If I switch to one of the Chinese channels, I can see English as being one of the selectable options. If I select English on the Chinese channels and switch back to the English Pearl TV channel, I do see English subtitles displayed, yet the subtitles menu does not give me the option to select/deselect it.[DOUBLEPOST=1462174368][/DOUBLEPOST]Log file attached

Found the problem. I recorded a TV program from the English Pearl channel in .ts format. I analysed the subtitle track that shows as "Chinese Simplified" in Mediaportal and it was in English! In fact, that subtitle track contains metadata that specifies it is a Chinese Simplified or English and I suspected it depends on what program is being shown but MediaPortal always report it as CHS (which is "Chinese Simplified")
