Enable Apple TV Subtitles

While a video is playing, hold down the Select (center) button on your Apple TV remote to bring up the Options menu, then choose the Subtitles view. If there are embedded or external subtitles associated with the video they will appear in the list. If you are using Silver Screen to AirPlay video to the Apple TV, it will dynamically extract the subtitles and send them to the Apple TV.

No TidBITS Issue on 21 November 2011

Send Article to a Friend

Next week is the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, so we won’t be publishing an email issue on 21 November 2011 as we get ready for family and food. A number of us will again be consulting the handy worksheets from our own Joe Kissell’s “Take Control of Thanksgiving Dinner” ebook for our dinner preparations — no one lays out what needs to be done better or more clearly than Joe.

Although the weekly email edition of TidBITS won’t appear next Monday, we’ll no doubt continue to write and post articles to the TidBITS Web site. To keep up with everything we’re writing, you can check back at our site, use the free TidBITS News iOS app, or subscribe to our RSS feed, Twitter stream, or Facebook page. And look for the next email issue on 28 November 2011!
