With live tv it works ok for me (I don't remember what settings I have,
though), but when watching recordings, the text appears usually several
seconds too early (been too lazy to report this earlier, sorry...).

On the subject of subtitles, I've noticed that, at least with movies
from TV2 in Finland, the subtitles appear about 0.4-1 seconds too early
(I have to shift it before putting it to DVD). For some reason, this is
not needed with the 30-minute Maxwell Smart episodes, though...
