Advanced SubStation Alpha support


#1

ok, well I have both a wdtv and a wdtv live.

After some experimentation, I’ve come to realise that the wdtv series in general do not provide proper support for the Advanced SubStation Alpha format for subtitles. It doesn’t support the advanced typesetting capabilities of this fantastic subtitle format.

I know that this issue has been around for a long time, but we’ve yet to hear anything back from WD about this issue. I see on the page for the WDTV live:

Subtitle - SRT, **bleep**, SSA, SUB, SMI 

You say it’s supported and yet you do not support all it’s features. Please fix this ASAP, I watch alot of translated media.

Have you search the rest of the forum about this? I’d give it a try. Or, have you tried contacting WD’s Technical Support about this? I would consider giving them a call or sending them an email.
