You know.. DVD Santa is a power monger... I used the xtoDVD and love it!! 
However, am having a problem (because i'm such a noob) at maintaining the 
subtitles in fact, even the forced subs seem excluded during conversion.

i am attempting to do .mkv's of 1 video, 2 audios, and 3 subs.   Please 

Thanks in advance.
