mkv and VOBSUB
Hello, I have an A-300 and I am trying to determine if the A-300 should display VOBSUB subtitles imbedded in an MKV container. I have tested it on my PCH and it does not work. It DOES work on my Dune. I have read some posts that say it is not supported, and I have read others that says it was supported until the last patch. I am wanting to convert all of my ISO's into MKV's, but I don't want to lose all my subtitles. Thanks

RE: mkv and VOBSUB
vob/sub should work and has in the past as long as they are normal vob/sub and not hires vob/sub which is not supported. I have not tested in awhile to say for sure if newest firmware broke them or not.

RE: mkv and VOBSUB
vobsub aka sub/idx is broken in the current 300 series firmware.

sub/idx has been supported externally with AVI files and with MKV internally. However recent firmwares for the 300 have bnroken sub/idx support.
See here:

Moved to 300 subtitles forum section.

RE: mkv and VOBSUB
I have a large number of self-made sub/idx subs. I hope Syabas fix it.
