View Full Version : Reading external subtitle files (SRT, SUB, USF etc.)

Hello Philips,

Is there a way my Phlips 42PFL6007 TV can read and show subtitle files when playing a movie with the same filename?

I tried to play a movie from my USB with a SRT-file. I also tried this connecting my NAS by using DLNA.
Both options do not show the subtitles. Is there a way the subtitles will be shown, other than burning the subtitles into the movie file?

When Googling, I can find some answers about Samsung TV's able to read subtitlies, but Philips TV's are not able. Is this information correct?

Try PS3 media server. Or create XSUB or Idx/Sub with AVIAddXSubs program. Tell me its work for you;)

Great! Found it! I just needed to enable the subtitles in the Avi on the TV using the menu "subtitles". Now it's working!

With PS3 I guess for AVI, transcoded to Mpeg or no encoded for MKV HD movies(DTS-HD audio). Good for you but on my BDP5200/12 player not working subtitles. Are you try to create Idx/SUB with AVIAddXSubs program and place in folder on your NAS?
