Huh? Are you using the vobsubs from a DVD with a HD video?
That can't work, because
a) HD video can also come with HD vobsubs
b) we can't figure out if those are PAL or NTSC vobsubs either

So while you may have been lucky before, if you want vobsubs to
work with HD video you'll have to add a size, I can't think
of any other solution that works at least somewhat ok for
every case.
