Hello! I recently had XBMC version 13 loaded onto my Apple TV 2, and ever since, haven't been able to get subtitles to work. I read the posts about this, followed the instructions, and was successful at loading and enabling the subtitle add-ons (thank you for the instructions). However the subtitles still aren't working. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Welcome to the forums.

Try posting a debug log

Post it to pastebin or a similar service and post a link here.

Tell us what film you were trying to get a subtitle for, it'll help anyone searching through the log.

I am having a little trouble using the subtitles add-on, specifically I am using OpenSubtitles.org.

Anytime I download a subtitle the permissions on the file are 750, the owner can read write execute, but the group can only read write. So, after I have downloaded the file the subtitles do not display as they traditionally should. I have to stop the video and start it again to load the subtitles.

The permission for the drive are 770, so I am not sure why they are not working as expected - any ideas? Thanks for your help.

Why would you need to execute an srt file? It is not an executable.
