Good day, since I am hearing impaired, it is important for me to be able to use the teletext subtitle. As you can see in the first picture, the teletext subtitle in the Kodi is unusable, since the background respectively the teletext side is black. Also the intense try in the settings, has brought nothing. After various email with the support of DVBLogic is the problem clearly with kodi.
To make sure that my system is in order, I have tried the VLC player and see second picture, it has worked.
Now I would be really glad, if this problem would corrected in kodi. What do I have to do for that?

This is a known issue and to my knowledge exists only in Windows-platform and is not DVBLink related. Actually this issue surfaced with Kodi 16 first time (if I remember correctly) worked before OK. Would be nice to have this solved.

In general the teletext subtitle functionality in Kodi would need more work to make it usable but with limited Kodi-development power, this is prioritized very low.

Hello goodton, thanks for your input. I can't understand if in version 15 this worked and then suddenly stopped working. Hope this bug comes back to running.
