well, I’d convinced myself that this was all down to user settigns and not a program bug.
but then I did a main movie only rip to PC hard drive of Renaissance using 188.8.131.52 a couple of days ago & the subtitles were on by default when I viewed the output on the PC with powerdvd.
If there is a bug, then it’s intermittent as the last movie I did, on exacly the same software settings did not display the problem.
it could be, as an earlier poster said, that removing the menus or warnings somehow impacts the subtitle setting as a side effect ?
PS have not tried 184.108.40.206 - I’m also put off by the number of bug reports.
