    I get the subs come on without pressing the button quite often (on the 4000), usually when switching inputs.

    Edit - this may or may not be relevant.

    It would be better if there were a separate subforum for the 5000 IMHO.

    Difficult one.

    On one hand the software is different. on the other they do share much of the same UI and hardware. Needs a owner with both (Barry ? } to really givan opinion.

    My Wife uses the subtitles extensively on our 5000t.
    Because of this I have seen them on a few occasions.
    I haven't seen a problem, So I asked her indoors.
    She say, that they are fine, But, sometimes they can be little bit behind on the news but nothing else. Not even live programmes, including the Senataff Last Sunday. It's just a thought but could any delay be something to do with the transmition of them.

    Off topic...for the time being we will leave as is, this may change in the future.

    No the subtitles are a seperate video track, the issue is the audio track with the spoken words gets progressively out of synch with the same words displayed as a video overlay. Each track is contained within the same data stream, it cannot get out of synch at the broadcaster end, It's a software issue, if it was broadcast all Freeview/Satellite kit would have the same issue. Like a major lip synch issue for viewers with normal hearing.

    In fact they are part of the same data stream for all channels on the same digital multiplex, any synch issues on any channel on the same MUX has to be down to the receiver,

    I don't normally use subtitles on the news but I did yesterday for the BBC evening news. It seemed to me that the subtitles were in synch when the studio presenter was reading her script but lagged behind when a foreign correspondent was talking live and I presume this is because the sub titles must be created on the fly in that situation.
