    On TV I always use 125% or 150% fonts but I found that live TV will not display subtitle but if changed it to 100% it is fine. No problem with movie.



    Teletext subtitle here in Australia

    I think this scaling problem happened with MP1 before when they first enable Teletext subtitle on Live TV.

    Found SD Channel, subtitle very tiny.

    Found the scaling issue thread that MP1 that I posted and tested.

    Also found that the yellow button didn't work with TV subtitle but OK with movie.

    How to change the font size on TV subtitle?

    Can't post on that thread.

    Anyway installed 2.2.2.1.exe today the live TV subtitle still didn't scale correctly with 125, 150% fonts.

    You mean 2.2.2. correct?

    The yellow button should now work. However, sometimes it is necessary to restart the playback before subs will actually display - something for @aspik

    Yes 2.2.2, the actually exe inside the zip said MediaPortal_2_2.2.1.exe, do you think it packed incorrectly?

    I mean the scaling of subtitle didn't scale correctly if the fonts set to 125 or 150%. Because as I mentioned before, on big screen TV or 4K display we can't use 100% scale and layout, we have to use 125-200% depends on the resolution of the TV.

    No, the zip is OK, only the filename is not entirely correct.

    This depends on the type of subtitles that your provider is broadcasting. @aspik , I never tested this with different scaling, but I vaguely remember that the teletext subs were using fixed fonts and DVD subs would scale, but maybe not.

    Any reason I can't post on the other thread? I posted on there before.

    I got this "(You have insufficient privileges to reply here."

    Yes, it is now "archived". It was anyway about language selection, not scaling. So I suggest that you open a new one to not lose track of the issue.
