    Somtimes when I watch a DVD on my Panny deck, and I choose SUBTITLES OFF from the disc's menu (which I always do), the display still reads "SUBTITLE ON ---" or something to that effect when I press the menu display key while watching the film....yet, there are no subtitles being displayed....this happens on my Terminator 2 Extreme Edition disc, where I select SUBTITLES OFF and yet it reads "ON" with some odd dashes after it when I display the menu status on the screen and yet there are no subtitles coming this normal on some DVDs and why does it happen?

    Also, on some discs, such as U-571, while there are multiple language selections available, the status menu of the player will also read as if no other languages are on the disc, nor will it recognize that the ENGLISH DTS track is playing, for example; well, it WILL display "DTS 3/2.1 ch" on the screen, but it will not say ENGLISH.....instead, it puts dashes where the languages should be, and yet this is a normal Region 1 DVD....what gives? Has anyone else experienced this?
