Re: Subtitles too big

Completely agree, they are ridiculous. But I doubt if anything will be done, as nothing is done about the sometimes poor sound on Sky movies.

Re: Subtitles too big

On second thoughts its not a tivo problem, it only records what the broadcasters put out, its just as bad on freeview or freesat. Netflix is great for subtitles you can even set the size!

That's incorrect. The subtitle text is encoded into the stream. Just the text itself - not the way it's displayed. It's up to the box to decide how to display it. My old freesat box allowed you to set the font and size.

Re: Subtitles too big

Ok thanks didn't realise that, but then freesat and freeview can be equally criticised. PS watching "click" live had better subtitles ( white background ) that were better, as opposed to the recorded version,?

Re: Subtitles too big

If a prog I want to watch is on BBC I now watch on I player as the subtitles are usually a lot more watchable, ie no black background.

Re: Subtitles too big

Still not bothered Virgin?  New customer here, not impressed by all the issues I see completely unresolved since I last used you years ago.  Ceefax subtitles on a 4k tv.  Good work

Re: Subtitles too big

Well at some point this year the boxes will be changed to the new horizon software, I've no idea if it will fix the problem but it's in-house rather than 3rd party so it should be more flexible in getting fixes 

I'm a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share knowledge, I don't work for Virgin Media. Learn more
