Well, I`m not sure about that - but it won't be too long ;-)

DVB subtitles will be fully integrated in the next developer
version, thanks to Marco Schlüßler who povided the main parts
of the DVB subtitle handling. There are just a few remaining
issues that need to be solved before I'll release it.

Once DVB subtitles are fully working. ttxt subtitles will be next.
I haven't looked into the code of the ttxt subtitle plugin, yet, but
currently my idea is to convert the ttxt subtitles into DVB subtitles,
so that VDR only needs to handle one type of subtitiles for recording
and live viewing.
