Roku isn't using subtitles by default



I have setup in the settings for subtitles in english to be used by default. On other devices (not my Roku) this occurs. Movies/TV shows automatically use the subtitles.

This also used to be the way Roku behaved, but at a certain point they are now not played by default and I have to select them every time I play a new item.

Please respect my subtitle defaults and allow them to be played by default again.

The source of our pain and suffering:


ok, went to Roku home options > video > TURN ON CAPTIONS > subtitles > AUTOMATIC > exit
went back into roku > movie > subtitle showed up
