Subtitles not displaying on Panasonic TV


Apologies if this has been covered before but I can't get subtitles contained with in am MP4 file to play when streaming from my synology NAS to my Panasonic VT30 (2011). The picture and sound are fine but can't figure out how to get the subtitles to show this is the extract of the text file embedded in the file. I am using the latest version of Serviio, this profile - Panasonic Viera E/S/ST/VT (2011) - and a synology DS415+ NAS. I have tried with both transcoding on and off and all the subtitle check-boxes are ticked, subtitles transcoding is defualt UTF-8, I've tried inputting other settings but keep getting invalid character coding message. Much appreciated if anyone could help shed some light on this.

Re: Subtitles not displaying on Panasonic TV

Just a guess on my part, but I doubt your TV supports Timed Text captions. When I looked them up, TT seems to be designed for web based streaming. I have an ST30, but it's not very DLNA capable. I don't think I've ever seen subs on my TV from my media. Although the ST30 is so bad at DLNA I generally use my Roku 4 instead.

LG NANO85 4K TV, Samsung JU7100 4K TV, Sony BDP-S3500, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Insignia Roku TV, Roku Ultra, Premiere and Stick, Nvidia Shield, Yamaha RX-V583 AVR.
Primary server: Intel i5-6400, 8 gig ram, Windows 10 Pro, 22 TB hard drive space | Test server Windows 10 Pro, AMD Phenom II X4 965, 8 gig ram
