Fix for unwanted subtitles on Humax FreeSat HD recorder

The otherwise brilliant Humax FreeSat HD recorder - the FoxSat-HDR - sometimes starts displaying subtitles that can't be turned off with the Subtitle button on the remote control.  To turn off those annoying subtitles, press the OK button twice.  I have no idea why that works, but it does.

UPDATE: you might want to try pressing EXIT first (see comments below), as pressing "OK OK" sometimes advances you to the current time, if you're watching live TV in delayed mode - which is generally when the subtitles seem to appear for no obvious reason.
