RE: How do you turn off transparent subtitles in Media Center?
You are definately not alone, I am experiencing the same problem exactly as
you describe. I am hoping that Microsoft will be releasing an update for the
DVD Decoder that is included in Windows Vista as I hate this problem as well
as the fact that it only renders DVD videos in interlaced mode.
Does anyone know of an actual third party decoder that actually works
flawlessly with Vista yet? (I have heard of many attempts to use alternate
decodes but none successful).
