    Thanks very much! Nicely done, again.

    I very like the new menu in play. The progress bar is very good. Now, player remember external subtitles personal set, good!

    EDIT: it works. I'm not able to : "1. Play Settings - function keys - up and down keys - add the option of adjusting subtitle position"...

    HC2.0 tells us what kind of file specifications we have (MKV, TV, DTS, 5.1, etc, etc), but only after the video has beeing played. So, this informations are really basics and not so useful before that ; it's just say MKV and TV.

    Since ever, french internals subtitles management can't handle italic. When there are some, it put some specials characters instead.

    That's all for me. And again, thank you a lot. And sorry for my rough english...

    There's a thing that could be improve i think in HC2.0. About "Movies Collections" and "TV series", if you watch one movie or one episode, all the collection is mark as watch. So, when you're usually use "unwatched tab", it disappeared.
