    DLNA external subtitles

    Hello Philps

    TV: 32PFL4508

    Subtitles help menu:


    I have tried so many different media servers to get external subtitles work with avi file.

    Last tests are with Mezzmo dlna server - and according to logs subtitles are sent to TV but my TV does not display or understand them ...

    I have lost a lot of time reading around forums, experimenting with media servers, device profiles and so on...

    So one short question - does my TV really have external subtitles support via DLNA or the specifications are fake????

    Hi georgi,

    In another topic - http://www.supportforum.philips.com/...-does-not-show - it is clear that .srt is not supported via dlna.
    But what about the other formats .ssa and .ass?
    My question is month old and still have no clear answer.
    Philips, please respond.

    Philips TVs only support streaming one file at a time over DLNA, so embedded subtitles are required.
