Interactive TV in Windows Media Center

I happened to be switching between channels the other night and went to enable subtitles for a particular program (a feature of MCE in Windows 7 that I've grown to really appreciate).

I was surprised to see an extra menu appearing - "Interactive TV". Wow, I wonder what it does? Nothing apparently but it is intruiging. I'm not sure if this is something new in MCE, or a new feature for the television transmission in my area.

A reply to my query on the Australian Media Centre forums suggests this is a new feature that some channels are now transmitting.

If the fix on xpmc works, that will be fantastic.. I have recently started to experience some of the issues myself with timeshifting.. thought it was my htpc rebuild.

will do the reg hack to see if it fixes it for me!
