How do you turn off transparent subtitles in Media Center? - Solve
Back in January 2007, I posted a question about transparent subtitles in
Vista's Media Center. 7 months later, after finding no solutions
forthcoming, I finally stumbled across something that seems rather
counter-intuitive, but it works.

Simply put, enable closed-captioning in your DVD settings. Open Media
Center, go to Settings (under tasks, or right click when playing a DVD), go
to DVD, then Closed Captioning. Switch the caption display to "on" (it
defaults to "on when muted"). If you're getting two sets of subtitles after
doing this (the DVD subtitles and the closed captioned ones), just go back to
the Closed Captioning settings and switch the Captioning channel to something
else. That should get rid of the closed captioned subtitles and leave you
with the (now opaque) DVD subtitles.

For reference, this was the original question posted to this discussion group:

When playing a DVD in Windows Media Center in fullscreen mode, if I turn on
the subtitles for the DVD, they are made transparent. Unfortunately, they
tend to be too transparent and blend in with the DVD picture, making them
hard (and sometimes impossible) to read. Is there any way to disable this
feature and just display the subtitles with their normal opacity?

I've tested this on Vista Ultimate (RTM, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions).
It only happens when Media Center is in fullscreen mode. In windowed mode,
the subtitles are opaque as they should be.

On the 32-bit install I have an ATI FireGL 300 card with the latest drivers
from Microsoft (via Windows Update).
On the 64-bit install I have an ATI All-in-Wonder X800 with the latest beta
drivers from ATI (release 12/13/2006).
