I think the subtitle thing is definitely important, I just watched the 1978 version of Inglorius Bastards and there was significant conversation in German and I had no clue what was going on. I was wondering why there weren't any subtitles, I didn't know they weren't supported yet.

I hope subtitles will be optional meaning you can turn it on and off.

i think they should really focus on multi-chanel audio first.  listening to everything in two chanel stereo makes me cringe.

2ch audio is fine. You must absolutely hate watching older movies, and any TV show not broadcast in HD.

VHS movies must have been absolute torture for you then too eh?

You kids with your fancy 7.1 surround sound. Why back in my day, we got 1 channel audio and we were damn proud of it too! Why I remember having to make my own sound effects and music for movies... Get off my lawn!

haha i appreciate being a bit of an audiophile.  i havent seen a vhs or vcr in years.  and all broadcast is now in HD and surround sound.  its much more enjoyable that way in my opinion.

Not all, but a good portion of it is.
