No not at all. This thread was a very good initiative and saved me a lot of time. I slightly rephrased that sentence to remove the ambiguity.
What I meant was that others complain enough so that WD can be aware of the issues. If I also start repeating what has already been said that won't improve the situation. However with the workarounds I found I am happily streaming my mkv files with internal vobsub via dlna so this has improved the situation, at least for me.

You sure did improve the situation. I've forwarded your findings to WD and hopefully they'll find a way to fix this by firmware update. Haven't heard from pixelpower so I don't know how things are looking on the **bleep** front. I just don't watch anime.

I sorted out the license issues and made the modified version of BDSup2Sub available on my blog.
Looks helpful, but how exactly do I run this? I downloaded it and have no idea what to do.

It's a JAR file (a Java ARchive.)
As long as you have the Java Runtime installed on your PC, all you need to do is double-click the JAR file and the program will launch.

The workaround I added is for the binary subtitle format (sub/idx or sup). SSA is text-based therefore you don't need the workaround my bdsup2sub version provides.
In order to edit text-based subtitles you're better off with a tool like Jubler which is for text-based subtitles. bdsup2sub is for editing the binary streams from dvd or blu-ray disks and convert between those.

Oh I see. Well the biggest issue I have is with the dropouts. All the other problems I can ignore, but when two people are talking at the same time and one of the text streams gets cut off it's kind of hard to ignore it. I hope someone eventaully can fix this, or find a workaround since if it does get fixed I think I'll go back to watching MKVs on my WD media player again. I just got sick of it after a while and started watching all my MKVs on my PC. There are just way too many problems with the subtitles on the WD media players which is a real shame since most of the stuff I watch is subbed anime.
