What I meant was that the STB would decode the subtitles and "paste" the
subtitles on the image and the PVR-350 would process the subtitled
picture - it wouldn't notice the subtitles and do nothing with it, but I
would see it. Works fine with my VCR which can't record subtitles - but
records the digital subtitled video fine.
Thanks for the info tho :)
