  1. Hi guys,

    my first post here. I recently bought rather cheap Philips 50PUS7505 UHD. The problem with this TV is as follows. When I watch a movie from USB and subtitles are load (either from mkv file or from file), new line characters are not honoured. Let me give you an example.

    A portion of srt file:

    5
    00:01:37,833 --> 00:01:40,791
    First line.
    Second line.

    TV displays the above subtitle as:

    First line.Second line.

    But it should as:
    First line.
    Second line.

    I played with CR/LF, encodings and all the supported subtitle formats. In all cases subtitles are wrongly displayed. Unfortunately, this seems to be a bug in the TV.
    How do I solve this? Is there software that would allow for changing subtitles to fix this issue? Perhaps something along the lines could help:

    Original:
    5
    00:01:37,833 --> 00:01:40,791
    First line.
    Second line.

    Changed:
    5
    00:01:37,833 --> 00:01:40,791
    First line.
    6
    00:01:37,833 --> 00:01:40,791
    Second line.

    I skimmed through the manual it doesn't specific what sub or video formats are supported. Try converting to SSA or ASS, which support full text formatting.

    Edit: I found the supported sub and video formats. Keep note of the video profiles as this may be critical in the future when certain videos won't play.

    Playback formats
    • Video Codec : AVI, MKV, H.264/MPEG-4 AVC,
    MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4, WMV9/VC1, VP9, HEVC
    (H.265)
    • Audio Codec : MP3, WAV, AAC, WMA (v2 up to
    v9.2), WMA-PRO (v9 and v10)
    • Subtitles :
    - Format : SRT, SMI, SSA, SUB, ASS, TXT
    - Character encodings : Western Europe, Turkish,
    Central Europe, Cyrillic, Greek, UTF-8 (Unicode),
    Hebrew, Arabic, Baltic
    • Maximum Supported Data Rate :
    – MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) is supported up to High
    Profile @ L5.1. 30Mbps
    – H.265 (HEVC) is supported up to Main / Main 10
    Profile up to Level 5.1 40Mbps
    – VC-1 is supported up to Advanced Pro

  3. Thanks for this. I have already tried all the possible formats. Unfortunately, without any luck.

    first i'd make sure the srt is in utf-8. then since srt is a non positional subtitle format i'd insert spaces between the "first line" and "second line" until they aligned as you want.
