Caption data would most likely be stored in the streams or a separated data fie in the form of the text, along with control code data such as when to place it on the screen, for how long, at and what location (etc.) Basically the same or similar to the way Closed Caption caption data stored.

This is the last thing we are going to say on this subject because it's been answered multiple times previously. If so, a link would have been sufficient. Maybe I'm just dense. Anyway, I'm sorry to have created so much trouble for you. From a technical standpoint, closed caption technology is prett...

Re: Question

Because hooking your PC up to the TV means not being able to use the PC for anything else while you're watching NetFlix. If that's something you can live with, then by all means save yourself the $100, but for a lot of us, losing use of our computer for significant chunks of time is not acceptable....
