I'm obviously not the author of vdr, so I can't tell you why subs became
Maybe dvb subs weren't fully defined at the time ?

First time I'm trying to process recordings like this !

VDR 1.6 remains current in some repos (SLES for example), was current in
last OpenSuse (13.1)
Was current in Fedora until 2012, so not completely ancient.

There is no config to make it produce a stream with subs, it records all
the broadcast streams like this.

BTW I don't believe streams are broken - all recordings are like this
