First of all THANK YOU for yet another excellent app, Air Video TV. Bought it the instant I heard about it, and I don't mind at all that it is a separate purchase (you guys totally deserve it.) And the app works beautifully, for the most part. The only problem is that I wish there was a way to always have the "force hard subtitles" option turned on, just like in the Air Video iOS app. I watch a lot of videos that uses fancy subtitles with different fonts, positioning, text effects, etc. that are supported by the more powerful subtitle formats (SSA/ASS) but they just do not render well at all using Air Videos' default (soft subtitle) engine. I can turn "Force Hard Subtitles" on for each individual video, but then when I watch the next video in a series, that setting goes back to "off" again. The Air Video iOS app has an "always burn-in subtitles" option that does exactly this; however I do not see such an option in Air Video TV's settings page.

There's no global settings for this yet. It can be added, but I'd much rather come with a way to have full SSA rendering without having to burn it in.

Definitely, native decoding of advanced subtitles would be preferable. If such a system is being worked on, then I'll put up with having to manually switch on forced subtitles in every video for now :)

Stylized subs would be greatly appreciated!  Even if you charge a $1 in app purchase, I would support this great app!

i can't seem to turn subtitles off for some files.  I can change the subtitle source, but not disable it altogether.
