I have noted missing subs occasionally myself. Also there's still some
timing issues
(subs appearing too early). It should not be due to bad reception.
I'll see what I can do.

In Finland I've never seen such "live subs". If you could record a piece
of such program (maybe 5-10mins with lots of sub activity) and put it available 
somewhere for me to download, I could try to fix the subs using the sample. 
I might already know what's the problem.
