TRAMPS show 4th January 2017
We eventually got the film showing correctly.
The problem was caused by a fault in the start-up menu,
which was further aggravated by another bug which meant
that the disk would only work when started from scratch.
There was a fault in the start-up menu
in which the dubbed version was shown by default, but the
menu indicated that the Original in Hindi and English was
This was further aggravated by another bug which meant that
when the top menu was invoked from the remote control, the
screen would then go blank when PLAY was clicked.
The only way to get the start-up menu to work was to remove
the disk, and then put it back in.
This was not a quick operation.
The fist clue as to the absence of subtitles came when
Tanya (who organises TRAMPS licences) was
able to lip read, and realised that the actors were
actually speaking English.
Before the show. Tanya had run the disk for 10 minutes to check that we could get the
subtitles to work.
I too had done a similar check.
Neither of us suspected that the dubbed version was running owing to a lack of fluency
in Hindi and Catalan.
The problem started 11 minutes into the film.
Borrowing the Disk
If you left when the problems started without claiming a refund,
you are welcome to borrow the disk (DVD) to watch at home.
If you are interested in doing this please
send an e-mail.
In order to get it to work you are recommended to do the following:
By common consent, it turned out to be an excellent film.
- Insert the disk and let it run until the menu appears
- Move the red line down from “V.O.” to “Catalan”
and press OK
- Move the red line back to “V.O.” and press OK
- Move the red line down to the subtitle section and select “Inglès”
- The red line should have moved to PLAY and it should all work when you press OK
