No, I'm using teletex subtitles instead ;-)
I'm not supposed to be receiving uk channels (in theory the beam is 
focused on the uk), so I cannot really complain.
Besides, I'm not knowledgeable enough to be sure it's their problem or 
vdr problem (after all, if it didn't work with the freeview set-top 
boxes, they'd surely fix it, wouldn't they?)
OTOH I never had problems with dvb subtitles on the bbc channels (other 
than vdr not recognizing they're there in recordings, while they 
automatically show in live view).
