richUK,

Isn’t 1.02.14 needed before loading this firmware?  Is 1.02.14 part of the firmware update?

What is play support of Windows 7?  The release notes do not describe these patches in any detail to describe what was patched.

I was primarily looking subtitle support which this release does not seem to have either.

I am never able to see subtitles from the ripped files but they show are definately there becuase when the files in the Video_TS are buned to the DVD–the subtitles are there.

I can’t figure what out what this causing the subtitles not to show.

1.02.14 is included in the 1.02.19 pre-release and you can update from any firmware. Beware it is a BETA and you should report back on the firmware forum page. If you want to go back to .24 firmware you must use the download link on the prerelease page.
