I've noticed that if subtitles are forced to the top they don't work very well. Symptoms are some subtitles text going missing, disappearing completely, or refreshing the subtitle line back to start (in live broadcasts). A better way to show that refreshing subtitle line in a live broadcast problem would be like this: __________________________ | The quick brown fox jumps over the | ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Shortly after it'll show as: ____________________ | fox jumps over the lazy dog | ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ So the "The quick Brown" bit disappeared and "fox jumps over etc" took its place on the same line. This shouldn't be happening. This glitching was commonly happening on Euro 2012 live on BBC/ITV, where the broadcaster puts subtitles on the top so it doesn't cover up the football action. And also some movies which I've recorded on CH4, where some subtitles are put on top so as to not cover up the starting credits, some sentences just don't show. Do I have a faulty HDR-FOX T2, or is Freeview bad at handling subtitles? I'm an ex-Sky customer and never had issues like this.
