    I've had the mini for a few months now,I use it mainly to play .rmvb & .avi ,99% of .rmvb I tried works,just the odd one or two..all avi i've tried works just that when i'm loading subs with the avi file it takes ages 20-40secs ,the 2nd bug is very weird never seen before..what happens is every time theres subs the screen goes black with only the subs and like 5cm of the movie left.once theres no subs the movie goes back to normal..so have to switch off subs to watch the movie..

    Do you have the latest firmware?

    What format subs are you using - text format .SRTs? Maybe the problem is with the encoding used. You can try opening them in Notepad, then Save As, and select ANSI from the Encoding drop-down. Remember to save with quotes as "Movie Name.srt" (backup the original first before overwriting it), or else Notepad will make it Move Name.srt.txt

    P.S. If the .SRTs are already ANSI-encoded, try Unicode or UTF-8 instead and see if that helps.

    Most probably those are binary files, plus Notepad of course is useless when it comes to large files. Wordpad is much better, but if it's a binary file and not text, no use opening it in a text editor.

    Your best bet is to search the net and find matching .SRTs for your movies. Try those instead of the .SUBs (remove the .SUBs from the movie folder while testing so as not to cause a conflict). Since .SRTs are plain text and thus quite small (typically much less than 1 MB in size), they should load much faster too.
