I believe there was a problem with filenames containing more than one full 

For example, a file like myblueberrynights.srt would work, but 
my.blueberry.nights.srt would not.

The problem was reported with ticket 6869 
(http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/6869) and has been fixed a few days ago.

And of course, videofile name and subtitle file name have to be identical, 
except for the file extension.
