Hi everyone

I just got a DSE Freeview HD setup box yesterday and I was trying out the functions. It seems that the subtitles for programs on TV2 (because I haven't tried TV1 shows yet) appear about 2 seconds before the person says the line. This means that half way through that person's line, the subtitle will disappear and be replaced with what the next character will say.

At first I thought maybe the problem was just for that one show (last night's TV2 movie, Face Off) but this morning I had a look at Shortland Street and it was the same.

Am I the only one who has this subtitle problem?

I have the exact same problem with the TV2 subtitles using a Nova T 500 and MediaPortal, plus it has been mentioned by others in the NZ thread at the MP forums. So I assume this is a problem with the feed rather than our respective setups.
