Check the following:

* Your subtitle file must be named /exactly/ the same as the video
file, except using a .srt or .sub extension.  Both files must be in
the same directory.
** i.e. Video: '/myth/video/My Movie.avi'  Sub: '/myth/video/My Movie.sub'

* Check your keybindings for TOGGLECC.  This is the keybinding that
tells Myth to display subtitles.  The default is 'T'.

* Check the read permissions on the subtitle file
