    Philips HTS9140 Subtitle issues

    Hello Philip's users,

    I have recently bought an HTS914 home cinema model. It is great.
    Perfect sound, crystallized and enormous woofer sound.
    But...

    ...I have some problem with the subtitles.
    With a USB disk I tried to play a movie with Greek subtitles but this is not possible because the subs are not in a position to read them.

    You know it's something like that:

    #$^%&&*())__(^$#@!~!

    If the subs are in English format then i can read them.

    I hope I make myself clear.

    Please if anyone had solve this problem tell me the way.

    Hi,

    I would say that the character set (which is used in your Greek subtitle) is not supported...

    ...so I wait for a new framework?
    I have seen some post in the net for other BD devices of Philips and they were having the same problem. Philips made a new framework version and the mater where solved.

    Hi,

    external subtitles (also in containers) are not supported - you can only recode the movie and integrate the subtitle directly in the video stream...

    BTW. you need to be sure, that the codec of your (re-)coded movie is supported...

    Hello Philips users,
    My friend i have the same soundbar hts9140 and i have the same problem with the greek subtitles :"%^#*@#@^&".
    when i use the english subtitles i can read them normally.
    I tryed all the options, i also called the support center in Cyprus and they couldn't help me either!
    what do you think i can do now?
    P.S. I didn't understand exactly what your respond was to the first user.

    Anyway, i think that Philips Moderator has to clarify this bug!

    Thanks

    Hi,

    can you change the character set while playing the file? With the BDPs you can press the option button and change the character set...

    No you cannot.
    There is no such option on .mkv files.
    This option is only available on .xvid files...

    Hi,

    well - that bug was fixed in the last firmware of the BDPs (1.56) - hopefully they will fix that in HTS devices, too...

    I found that the same problem was resolved with a new firmware for another type of philips device in this topic:
    http://www.supportforum.philips.com/...hp/t-1204.html

    , so the only thing we can do is wait for the Philips Moderator to resolve our problem too.
    Thanks
