    Hi all.
    I have used Virgin tv in the past and found that a lot of subtitled programes had either missing or faulty subtitles, subtitles advertised and not actually being present (seems that virgin had disabled recording subs on some programmes due to problems) on both live & playback recordings resulting in myself dropping virgin & moving to Sky.

    Does anyone know if this has improved over the past 3 years, and also will it help to go with the current TIVO promotion fron Virgin as I'm also having some subtitle issues from my current Sky package.

    As a deaf person, I totally rely on the subtitles and am trying to find the most reliable company to go with, any help is much appreciated :) I'm sick of trying to watch TV from playback or delayed playback only to find that the subs are totally messed up & overlaid or missing entire paragraphs.

    Looking for hopefully some fast answers as I wanted to get info whilst Virgin still have the promotion on lol

    I'm not sure if your TiVo records analog programs, but if it does, the subtitles in analog recordings are often very garbled.
