Hello everyone,

I've been following MythTV's progress fairly closely - I've always been 
hoping to build my own MythTV box but one thing has been stopping me - 
lack of digital subtitle support.  As I'm Deaf, I require subtitles to 
be able to watch and enjoy programmes/films etc and would like to 
include a Digital Terrestrial or Satellite decoder card but apparently 
support to record/playback subtitles aren't available to be included 
with MythTV.  I'm not fully sure if even analogue teletext subtitles are 
recordable with MythTV with an analogue decoder card rather than an 
external decoder (such as a VCR).  From my experience, a lot of people 
prefer to be able to see subtitles and I think this feature would 
benefit everyone greatly if it were available?

Thanks very much for reading this

Cheers - Piers
