Huge English subtitle font
If you have a MKV with embedded subtitle in text format or external subtitle in .SRT format, 9600 will use a "huge" English font that is so distracting to the movie itself.
Upon checking, I find the problem happens on text format encoded in UTF-8 (aka unicode). If the text file is encoded in other code page e.g. Windows-1252, then the font size is much less distracting.
I don't find it a major issue, but a firmware fix seems easy to do too.
Do other people see the same huge fonts on some of your languages?
Note Blu-rary or DVD will not have such subtitle issue as the subtitles in them are basically images only.
Don't think it's that huge to me...
WRT your comments, let me try later today ...
i hv taken several pic for that...
i guess it's not so big, it's ok for me. yours looks like this size?
Here are the screenshots
Huge font: subtitles occupying almost the width of the screen.
More pleasing font size
Both subtitles are text, not any fancy format. With a bit more testing I found it's not related to text encoding.
The huge font is used when playback subtitles within MKV (enconding is S-TEXT/UTF-8).
The more pleasing size is external .SRT subtitle (encoding is also text in UTF-8).
I wish Philips could use the more pleasing font size when play back S-TEXT/UTF-8 subtitles in MKV. Shall be an easy fix? Or better: adding a function to let people choose their preferred font size on text based subtitles. I do reckon some people prefer bigger fonts.

having an option to adjust so will be better i think
cuz i m the one opting for the larger fonts...
Agree. Having the option to adjust would be nice and easy to do. The fonts are already built-in. My only problem with the huge font is it less aesthetically pleasing.
