Hi, is anyone else having issues with subtitles on BBC HD channels? I can't find anything on twitter about it so wondered if it was a local transmitter issue.
What happens is two or three subtitle lines in a row don't show up and this occurs approx. every few minutes (sometimes it can be 20 minutes before it occurs again). I have already excluded this being an equipment issue as subtitles still go missing when I plug the aerial directly to the TV instead of my humax freeview recorder. ITV HD, Channel 4 HD and Channel 5 HD are fine.
The issue has been ongoing for two months now on pre-recorded programmes or movies. I can't comment for programmes such as the News or any other live programmes as subtitling is delayed, so it's hard to tell if some lines are missing (I'm deaf).
