Microsoft ignoring requests for DVBT Subtitles

Considering the digital TV switchover begins here in the UK this year, Microsoft have done exactly NOTHING to recognise that fact that some users of their Media Center (including the new Vista version) REQUIRE subtitle support to be able to enjoy watching TV. By that, i mean they have pretty much ignored one of the major gripes about the old (2005) version of Media Center from a UK, European and Australian point of view - all of who now use DVBT / DVBS broadcasting - and that is the lack of subtitle and interactive services support. Even FREEWARE applications such as MediaPortal can manage it, yet Microsoft with all their billions don\'t seem to think it\'s a reasonable use of their time or money to develop this for us. So now, people of the REST of the world, it\'s time to tell Microsoft that they can\'t stop ignoring us. Life and TV does exist outside of the good ol\' U S of A !


For the Media Center users of the rest of the world.
