Lucky you, at the time of night I do these things there is very little
on with subtitles.

Yup, and T will switch it on/off

Yes but not in the right languages, but that has never stopped me having
a go at trying to get something working. ( C programming skills: very
low, c++ programming skills, I only just learned what cout does!)

In other words, these aren't my languages but I'm working on learning
c++ as fast as I can, I have so many things I'd like to add to Myth!

I'm just compiling up a new version now with some additional testing
bits in it, so far I have managed to establish that the pages are not
being found. (vbicallbackdata.foundteletextpage is always 0);

Yeah and I really belong on Myth-Users (which I am on), but I do like
lurking here and learning bits and pieces.
