I have a multi-user setup as described in
With vdr 1.7.x the DVB subtitles work only in the main vdr. In secondary

quite obvious because of large changes in the system.
But why aren't subtitles working in the recordings. Isn't everything
required to decode the subtitles included into 0000?.ts, index, and info
