Subtitles hard to read on WD TV Mini


I’ve been playing my first avi including subtitles, and what strikes me is the lack of shadow/outlining in the subtitles. When a scene contains a lot of bright/white sections in the lower part of the screen, the subtitles totally blend in with the scene, unable to read them at all… Can this be altered?



Perhaps the firmware can’t be changed to facilitate a better shading?

Yep, that’s a deficiency in ALL the WDTV players; they remove the Outlining when rendering some types of subs.

Same thing exists on the newer players, too…
