If I load a DVD (in this case '300') in DVDFab it will show that there are six languages available
I normally use the display only forced subtitle setting but then I don't get the subtitles that would normally display during a change of language in the film. FOr example, the movie is in English but characters talk shortly in French and the film...
So, my solution is to start the blu-ray with PowerDVD to identify if there is a separate track with forced subtitles, if so, I launch DVDFab select only that subtitle track and select the option to render it directly to video.
Ripped Captain Phillips "Movie Only" w/ DVDFab v126.96.36.199 (v9) flakes out my system out. Shrunk using BD-Rebuilder v4605 to BD25 (I realize there are two newer versions, but I had used this older version prior to those coming out.) Forced Subtitles remain on-screen until the next Forced Subtitle.

If I check both the 'English' and 'English (forced only)', I get too many subtitle tracks.
So it is safe to assume that either DVDFab does not correctly copy the forced subtitle track, or XBMC does not pick up the forced subtitle track flags properly.
The Live doesn't have the ability to play forced subs only, like a DVD player would. For a regular DVD (as opposed to a blu-ray) you can look at DVDFab and see if there is any option to rip forced subtitles only.
In Setting up a subtitle (in my case from Taiwanese audio to English subs, the box to 'display forced subtitles only' should be unchecked and not checked as I had it. But there was a further problem with DVDFab: perhaps the size was set incorrectly as my normal size is about 700.
