This sounds very good. As an example, in Finland I always use 
'Description' since the default check method does not work because in 
here we don't have subtitles at all. I have local mod which changes the 
default to 'Subtitle' both in MFE and MythWeb but have been thinking 
that there should be way to have the user's preferred method 
automatically selected instead of the current hard coded default.
