Yes - it works with LiveTV too, but with a bit of a time delay (the same
speed as a standalone Freeview box would receive them!). Actually, I've
sometimes wondered if it would be possible to add code to mythtv to make it
view the video/audio about 10 seconds out so the live subtitles could be
brought into sync. (So rather than having an adjustable delay between audio
and video, there would be an adjustable delay between the video and subtitle

The one problem I can think of though is if you transcode your recordings
(even lossless transcode), the subtitle stream will be lost with MythTV 0.20.
I think this might have been changed in SVN though - but I'm not sure.

Hope that helps,
