Subtitles - DVD/Blu-Ray players that do NOT show subtitles over picture?


Standard Member
I am looking to buy a new TV/DVD and one of the specfic requirements I have is that the DVD/Blu-Ray player handles subtitles in a specific way. My wife is not english and we often have to have subtitles on. Our previous player (a Sony I think) used to squash the picture a bit and show the subtitles in a black-backed area at the bottom as opposed to directly over the picture as our current one does. Is there a name for this feature? I need a way to establish if the players I'm looking at on-line will do this as I much prefer it.
Any suggestions?
