How could I easily send or mirror or watch movies with external subtitles easily to TV from computer. I have tried to hardcode movies, then copying it to USB and plugging to PS3 and watching from there, but it just takes too much time.
Then I tried HDMI from computer and playing movie via VLC. That is fine, but if I need to pause or control the movie I need to change settings from PC and not from TV, which is not very practical. Then I tried PS3 Media Server, but it just doesn't work very well. It slows down the movie sometimes and is not realiable.
I have no budjet, so feel free to recommend somekind of hardware. :)

Try XBMC on your PC, it's awesome. Also it has an app for mobile devices (android, ios, wp) to remote control it. It even allows you to download subtitles for anything you watch (if they are available)

Ok thanks for that. Any alternatives?
Is it possible to stream to Roku Box with subtitles if I would buy it, since it has remote and is wireless?
