    Trying to change the color from the default white to yellow as white tends to get lost in some scenes making it nearly impossible to read. I go in and change it on the preferences and it still shows up white when I try to watch a movie bought or rented via iTunes so it's not recognizing the change. Also, is there a way to change the position of the subtitles? I'd like them to be on the black bar instead of just above it.

    I've noticed that some iTunes files have hard-coded subtitles to which the ATV4's subtitle settings don't apply. My preference is the ATV set to white text with a transparent gray backdrop -- great when it works, annoying when they're hardcoded. There's no position option in the setting screen that I've found.
