I tend to fast forward recorded programs quite frequently
(skip dull parts :) and it is very annoying that DVB-subtitles gets 
confused and misplaced after each fast forwarding action, it may take a 
long time before those are displayed again. I'd prefer "burned 
subtitles" because those are always displayed and always in synch of the 
programs itself regardless how you skip recording + or -.
Really missing old VHS-tape age, never problems with subtitles what so ever.

Also I think people who are used to dubbed programs do not realise how
wonderful it is to be able to turn down audio of televison program and 
just use subtitles to watch it bearly hearing the audio. Specially handy 
when you don't want to use headphones but be able to watch programs 
without disturbing others (audio down).

Effort to have DVB-subtitles syncronisation after fastforwarding is a 
very, very good feature, so to speak. Wanted behaviour is exactly as
older "burned subtitles" way of working, always there.
