    Bug: Subtitles blinking and too small

    Hi,

    I just tried to play a video (.avi) from USB with subtitles (.srt).

    The subtitle file is recognized, so this works, which is nice.

    But the text itself is blinking at 1 Hz (like those videotext blinking attribute).
    --> Does anybody else experience this or is it just me?

    Update: it seems, it's just me (or better that one srt file). Tried a different srt file, and - no blinking.

    Also the font is very small (not too small, but very hard to read).
    --> Request: Make it configurable.

    Update 3:: Had that blinking problem again. Here is an example movie+srt file to reproduce this error.

    Thanks!

    Matthias

    Thanks for the info!

    It's satisfying to know that a feature request or bug report reached you guys and is being discussed internally, because for my feeling, some posts are easily missed because of the mixture & ratio of important vs discussion/ not so unimportant posts..

    Hi Thomas,

    yesterday evening, I tried another movie with srt-File - and I couldn't reproduce that "blinking" behaviour.
    Unfortunately, I don't have the original srt file any more, but I guess there were some strange characters in that file that changed the text attributes on the TV to "blinking".

    The file probably had some <i> and some </i> in it, but I tested that, and they were just ignored on the TV - nothing strange happend.
    This also explains, why noone else experienced this.

    So I guess there was a problem with my srt file.
    I'm sorry for any inconvenience!

    Matthias

    Request: Subtitle display

    I have a 37PFL7606/12 TV and when it displays subtitles from USB, they aren't centered, very small and have a black opaque box around the text. I hope it is possible for Philips to update the firmware, so it would display subtitles like how subtitles are shown on tv broadcasts.

    Beside the small size, I just had the problem with blinking subtitles again.
    It seems to have something todo with the srt file, but I couldn't put my finger on.

    But I've zipped an example (movie+srt) for the software engineers to reproduce this.
    It can be downloaded here.
