    I've never heard of this ASUS and from what I see it's quiet pricy. So I may be not even in the same stratosphere as you are in terms of what you are wanting to do.

    However, I've had a WDLive for about 2 years, which was only $99 and it has been quiet capable of streaming media from my PC to my TV, along with Mezzmo. Maybe I'm way behind the times. But if your only needing to stream from PC to TV, I can't quiet understand the option of this ASUS versus the WDLive.

    The various WD TV Live media player models do support quite a few subtitle formats in both external and embedded forms - including SRT subtitles - so you do not need to burn subtitles in most cases.

    Mezzmo Android: Install it on your tablet, smartphone, Android TV or Amazon Fire to browse and stream files from your Mezzmo library to all your devices. Full details at http://www.conceiva.com/products/mez...mo_android.asp
    Mezzmo for Kodi Add-on: Install it into Kodi to stream files from your Mezzmo library directly in Kodi. Full details at http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...odi_user_guide
    Mezzmo for Roku App: Install it onto your Roku to stream files from your Mezzmo library. Full details at http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...oku_user_guide

    Yes, to confirm, it's capable of subtitles.

    Also, as an added bonus, ha ha, you can adjust the size, and position of subtitles with the WDLive, which I have found is a nice feature.

    Oh, and I must give full disclosure, there have been a few movies, maybe 2 out of 100, whereby the subtitles would not pick up from the streaming from PC to WD scenario. However, if I saved the movie to a flash drive, along with the subtitles file, it would pick them up. I'm not sure why this was the case, but at 2 out of 100 I didn't care.

    The only thing that the WD Live is not capable of is slow-motion. They may have updated it to handle slow-mo with new versions, but not to my knowledge. FF, yes, but slow-mo, no.
