Does your hardware player have any options for changing the subtitle font, font size, etc.?
One thing you can try is to create a subtitle file in a format that'll let you choose the font and text style (like SSA/ASS, for example - I should note that SRT normally does NOT have support for font/text styles). Give it the exact same name as the movie file (MyMovie.mkv, MyMovie.ssa), store the fonts used along with the movie... then when playing the video, see if your player allows you to select the external subtitles.
Otherwise, you'll need to unpack each MKV individually, edit the subtitles (if possible) to change/add your fonts, then repack the MKVs.If cameras add ten pounds, why would people want to eat them?
