Everytime I play a dvd I have to turn off the subtitles, anyway to keep them off always by default ?

thanks

Setup->DVD->Uncheck Show Subtitles

Should work as far as I know.

I found that this config option disables subtitles for most DVDs but there are some where the subtitles cannot be disabled at all (Fantasic Four was one of them) using RC1 and RC2. Under Windows Media Player I was able to disable the subtitles on these DVDs.

I think the difference was that some DVD menus let you choose or "On" or "Off" for "Subtitles for the hearing impaired"' and other DVD menus just toggle the option by clicking on the the subtitles menu option. Media Portal doesn't seem to be handling the toggle option properly.

I almost lost lounge room HTPC privileges due to a massive drop in WAF due to this issue :)

    Same here, RE the WAF...

    I found that I could turn off subtitles in the DVD menu, but they would return every time a chapter changed in the movie.
    I use the DScaler, so I was able to turn off "Display forced subtitles" in the dscaler options (MP config/filters/dscaler video).

    The only issue is I now have the reverse. Some DVD's need subtitles and they only appear for the current chapter and then have to be turned on again.

    Hi, I found the problem in my configuration without PowerDVD. In the past I had configured the following setting: "Use internal Blu-ray menu player" and it works - slowly but it worked fine. As described, this suddenly stopped working after an update in the last few months. Yesterday, as a test, I deactivated this check box and it...

    Since I played around with all the settings as per the previous posts and despite putting everything back to how it was, as far as I can tell, now when my HTPC wakes up to make a recording it no longer does so in away mode. I will probably do a restore from a backup in the hope that that will resolve the issue.:mad:

    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...

    I tried setting the windows screensaver to power off the display on my MP1 HTPC but in fact it only blanks the screen ("no video signal") on the TV I suspect the AVR has something to do with that. If I manually put the TV only into standby when TV is playing but paused then on wakeup I could not immediately take it out of pause and...
