I've come across my first real annoyance with the WDTV Live since i purchased it at release.

When watching shows where there are often more than one subtitle line on screen at a time, the WDTV Live will just instantly get rid of the previous and only display the most recent.  This is quite a problem seeing how more than one person can be speaking at a time!  Also things like signs are overwriting conversation.  Sometimes the subtitles are delayed or lagged, and don't even appear until the next line is half a second from starting, if at all.  This is making the video hard to follow smoothly.

Is there any way to remedy this besides getting a hardsubbed version?  Is it something that is difficult to support?  Never had a problem on PC players (hell, the subs were actually styled there to boot!)
