Hi Nicholas,

If they really are hard subtitles like you say then there is nothing you
can do, the subtitles are encoded into the video stream with no way to
remove them.

If they are soft subtitles though you should be able to remove them
using mkvmerge. In mkvmerge add the mkv file and deselect the subtitle
track, then you can create a new mkv file with the same audio/video but
without the subs.

Hope this helps, Chris.
