Download and installation went very smooth.
However after the update I have an issue of the subtitles showing up double on my TV.
Any quick idea what could be the problem causing this?

I see notes: Improved support for Panasonic Viera GT50 TVs (thanks, pcjco!)

What have changed exactly? I'm curious as I have a GT50.

I sent a PM to pcjco, still not read so I thought I would ask here.

@Rhialto before this version, we were transcoding a lot more videos to the GT50. Now we send a lot of them directly to the TV.
