freeview subtitles via live tv media centre vista

My aged parents have a philips mediapc (lx2000) with a separate monitor and built in tv card. Its excellent for watching and recording freeview channels etc.and they can surf the net etc. However it wont dipslay subtitles when watching freeview channels although the windows media centre in vista implies it can (the subtitles option isn't in any of menu options although from the microsoft website you think it would be) I think i heard somewhere our(uk) freeview system isn't compatible - can anyone help?

one guy in lancashire in that thread seemd to be getting subtitles for bbc2 - how could he do that? - is there a way of watching the bbc via media centre that gives you subtitles?
