I had started watching The Scorpion King and had decided a few minutes into the movie that I wanted to turn on English subtitles. So...I took out my trusty Toshiba DVD remote (DVD player is a SD-1600, BTW), pressed the "Subtitle" button, then started to press the up/down arrow keys so I can select "English". However, upon doing so I got the "circle/slash" symbol on my screen, meaning of course that such a selection was not possible while the movie was playing; note--pressing the left/right arrow keys produced the same result. As a result, I had to stop the movie (hitting "menu" key) and go into the DVD menu in order to turn on English subtitles. I think I had at least one other movie in my collection (can't remember the title at the moment) that did the same thing. Just curious as to if there are other movies where the only way you can turn on subtitles is through the DVD menu...or is my DVD player just too lame for certain (newer?) DVD movies?
