Hi
Just a wee question re when you watch a film that has subtitles on it that you don't need.
I take it this is on the copy & there's no way of removing this?
Cheers

I think I saw somewhere in the add-on's tools where you could turn off subtitles.....guess it depends on the add-on

Some addons (Covenant, Exodus & SALTS to name a few) have built-in Subtitle options in their settings.  These are disabled by default.  Unless you have manually enabled them, you won't see them.

Alternatively, you can disable or enable subtitles in the on-screen display while a show is playing -- it's the first icon on the right.

If you're using an addon without this function, or you have disabled this option in the addon settings and you still see subtitles, then you are right, they are hard-coded and cannot be removed.
You will see this most commonly with new movies which have not yet been released as a DVD. (These subs are usually Asian.)
