Hi All,

Right now the WD TV-Live can't read the Hebrew Charactes in a .SRT file  :-\ It can decode almost any other language character (like Greek and Arabic) but not Hebrew (it gives you ????? all over your screen).

Does anyone know if WD plans on adding this option to their next firmware update?
Does anyone know of a solution?

I have the non-live WDTV, and it doesn't support Arabic. Are you sure the live supports Arabic?

The main issue with Arabic / Heberw is right-to-left ordering of the text, which is something that requires some work. I don't expect it would be easily supported (but I can still hope).
