    I've done a few searches and can't find any mention of this problem on this player. On certain movies, when player generated subtitles appear on the screen, it then switches subtitling on and everything everyone says appears as a caption at the bottom of the screen. It's very annoying on films where there is a lot of foreign dialog [​IMG] Switching to the main menu and back seems to fix it. Some films where I've gotten this problem:
    Goldeneye
    Black Hawk Down
    There's a few others as well, but I can't remember at the moment which titles they are. Anyone else get this problem on the JVC XV-S500 DVD player? I was going to contact JVC about it, but I wanted to see if anyone else had experienced this problem first. Thanks!

    I also have the XV-S500BK and have noticed the subtitle problem most recently with "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" and "XXX". I don't know of any way to fix it other than the rumored firmware, but I haven't been able to locate it anywhere.

    Same problem on my 600BK with my Ronin disc. Verrry annoying! So much so that I am looking for a replacement player. I may wait for the Denon 2900 or pick up a Panny RP-91 before they disappear.

    Oh, and on the 600BK, the zoom icon disappears after a couple of seconds. My friend's 500BK does not allow you to remove the icon.

    Same problem here. (500BK) On movies like xXx, EVERY TIME a caption came up I'd have to pick up the remote, get into the menu & turn it off. PITA.

    Actually I have not sen this problem yet. I have had the player for a few weeks. What are the titles that this player has trouble with. I see the following listed so far...

    - Golden Eye
    - xXx
    - Black Hawk Down
    - Who Framed Roger Rabbit


    What others?

    I've only had the problem with "XXX" and "WFRR". I own Goldeneye as well, but it's worked fine every time. As for the firmware, I've just seen people talking about it in other posts. I emailed JVC about it, but they just tell me I have to call in and talk directly to a rep. I haven't done that yet, but if anything comes out of it, I'll try to post it.

    Add Sweet Home Alabama to the list.

    Irritating that the player is doing this on NEW titles.
