[mythtv-users] Subtitles?

Thanks for the replies everyone. So far so good.
Here's my hardware setup that I hope to use:
AMD Athlon XP 2800+
1GB memory
60GB or 80GB HDD, whichever I can find in my box.
And a box full of TV tuners!! Is there a listing or FAQ where it will tell
you which card will work and will not work? Here's the list anyway... 
2 x ATI Theater 550 Pro - chipset 218T510AKA13
2 x NVIDIA (model P179) - chipset Philips SAA7174AHL
2 x Thomson DVB-T - Conexant DVB-T CX22702-15 and Conexant Broadcast Decoder
1 x WinTV - Conexant CX23416-12
1 x Philips Emuzed Inc - chipset SAA7134HL
1 x Pinnacle PCTV  - chipset BT848AKPF
My aim is to watch TV via DVB-T, so I guess I'm better off with using the 2
x Thomson DVB-T tuners (one to watch and another one to record), but only if
it's supported under MythTV?
Do I need a beefy video card or a cheapo 32MB card will do fine?
Many thanks,

For Live TV I'm not 100% certain for News etc. but IIRC IT works
perfectly for pretyped subtitles, and recordings have the subtitles 
saved with them.

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,
