This is nice to hear.
Now that you compared subtitling and audio streams I should propably 
tell you that they are experimenting with an "audio subtitling" in 
Finland which means that there is a possibility to select a subtitling 
which is read by a some kind of a synthetisizer. In set-top boxes this 
is done so that you select dutch (not that common language in Finland) 
from the subtitles menu. In VDR this brings up dutch as an option in the 
audio selection menu.
This is from syslog:
changing pids of channel 1 from 512+128:650=fin:2321 to 

How do you think this has been done? I mean the difference between 
set-top boxes and VDR. Not that important though, just curious about it.
