Does it work if you add the line

X 3 11 esl

to the 'info.vdr' file of that recording?


As to why that line isn't in there to begin with, I don't know.
Maybe you can make some recordings and explicitly verify whether
the subtitle tracks are correctly listed in the info.vdr files.
And if they are not, try to find out why.
A good starting point for some debug output would be SetTrackDescriptions()
in vdr.c.
