I'm using PS3 Media Server 1.70.1 on a Windows 7 PC.
When I watch the .mkv files with VLC player, the subtitles appear fine, however, no subtitles ever appear on any files played on the PS3 -- native, nonnative, etc.
I've played around with the transcode settings, but to no avail.
Currently, I have use ass/ssa checked, fontconfig/embedded fonts checked, and use embedded styles checked.
I have codepage for non-unicode set to UTF-8 and TrueType font set to my windows verdana file. I have FriBiDi mode checked.
Though I have played around with unchecking some of these things, and still nothing.
