[mythtv] Digital subtitle support

Would the HD-2000 tuner work in Europe with satellite or terrestrial 
broadcasts (such as FreeView)?  I don't think they're HDTV compatiable 
aren't they?  Or will subtitle support for the HDTV tuner be portable to 
DVB (terrestrial or satellite) subtitle support?

Thanks again for your help

Cheers - Piers
