The ifo file says that your dvd has two subtitles:
audio stream: 0 format: ac3 (stereo) language: en aid: 128.
number of audio channels on disk: 1.
subtitle ( sid ): 0 language: cs
subtitle ( sid ): 1 language: en
number of subtitles on disk: 2
-sid 0 or -sid 1 may or may not work.
But in order to find the true sid of the subtitles you should
add the option -v to mplayer and look in the output for:
==> Found subtitle: 2
==> Found subtitle: 24
In this case -sid 2 or -sid 24 should work.
