- DVB subtitles keep losing sync. Setting a delay of 3 seconds appears to 
be pretty accurate but it'll drift out in an hour or two. Annoying as 
hell. Also subtitles in recordings go out of sync when fast forwarding or 
rewinding.  With the automatic timing thing the subtitles will just flash 
on the screen for about 0.01 seconds and disappear. 

There was a site I can't find anymore that had some kind of a timing patch 
for the plugin (also a patch called "braindeadtv" that made everything 
come out in 16:9 for those not lucky enough to have an adv7170) and I 
really didn't see it fixing anything either. Maybe I misunderstood the 
concept or something.

Doesn't anyone else get this or is it thought of as a minor irritation not 
worth mentioning?

- The OSD support is not as complete as on a full feature dvb card. There 
are ~always glitches. Teletext for example shows most pages with parts 
transparent where they shouldn't be etc. And you can just forget about 
using plugins like osdpip or osdimage.
