Media Player: subtitles don't display when non-default encoding is specified

Hello,

Moved to IOS 5.1.1, and to Media Player from ATV Flash 1.5.1. Now the external subtitles (stored in a .srt files) display only if the encoding is specified to be Western Roman (first choice). If I chose UTF-8 or anything else , only the first subtitle displays&disappear; none of the other subsequent subs would appear.

I never had this issue with the Media Player from ATV 1.4.? Any Idea? Is it a bug? Thanks in advance for the help.

This will depend on the .SRT file being used. Some subtitle elements are only compatible with certain encoding types.
