If you see numbers instead of languages, see the List of Language Codes link or check page 81 of your manual. Often there are two separate English tracks: subtitles with dialogue only and closed captioning with sound cues for the deaf.
Some DVDs require you to change the subtitle settings in the DVD menu rather than the DVD player display settings.
