When I see a movie with subtitules (.str files), some text is shown and some don't. There is something I can do?

By the way, I'm from Argentina!

Hello Argentina!

The WDTV has a few problems with subtitles.  In fact it is it's biggest problem area.  Be SURE to update to the newest firmware as this helps.  I believe another firmware update will arrive soon that will likely have a lot of subtitle fixes.  In the meantime you can combine your external subtitles into and MKV container as the internal subtitles work well.  I believe MeGUI will do this for you.

Also look at Hardcoding  http://www.ehow.com/how_4436334_encode-bluray-subtitles-avisynth-megui.html
