Thanks. I tried this in everything currently connected to this monitor and AVR (Roku 3, PS3, Xbox 360, WD TV Live, Panasonic DMP-BDT220, TiVo Roamio, the Win8 Netflix app, Silverlight in Chrome and HTML5 in IE11 web site players; obviously I'm bored
). In all of them it worked the same way: I got English subtitles with captions/subs turned off; I got no subtitles with captions/subs set to "English"; and I got Spanish subtitles with captions/subs set to Spanish.
For completeness, I plugged in my Roku 2 XS, which still has the old Roku player. In that player I could only get Spanish subtitles for the Chinese; no subtitles displayed with captions/subs set to English or with them turned off.
Of course, either way it's broken. You should get the English subtitles for Chinese when English captions are on or off and Spanish when Spanish subtitles are selected. I'll have to remember, if I'm listening to a passage of another language in an English language film and subtitles don't get displayed, that I should try turning English captions off (I usually have them on). (On the Roku 3 with the "New Netflix Experience" UI you can rotate through captions/subs options during playback with the B remote button).Edited by michaeltscott - 11/17/13 at 9:18pm
