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.

    MP1 MP2 Ordering DE
    Yes, it’s a feature of MP2. There are not many plugins, because most essential things are included by default. The look and feel depends on when you tried last time. Since MP2.3 there is Nereus as new default skin with a different look and feel. But MP2 is not a clone of MP1, so some things will be different.

    I think I've solved the remote button issue, there was an unknown driver in Device Manager which I discovered was the Serial IO GPIO driver. Installing that appears to have solved the remote problem. Who knew? Thanks to all who contributed to my solution.

    Of course this would be the best option, but I guess it’s not that easy to integrate external players into MP2. It was somewhere discussed, but I could not find the related thread.
