Hi Guys

I have another question about the subtitles...

Can i choose internal or external subtitles on a MKV File?

Can i select different subtitles within a MKV File?

You can switch the internal subtitles in an MKV file.  I've noticed that if you also have an external subtitle file, it treats that one as the primary.  The WD TV Live ignores any internal fonts and uses its own.  The only issue I've run into is that it doesn't ignore "translator comments" in ASS/SSA subtitles bracketed with { } symbols.  Not a big deal, but if you watch fansubbed anime, this may occasionally annoy you.  It seems like this would be an easy fix, so hopefully the folks at WD will get to it eventually.
