Subtitles @ Philips TV

I have a Philips Smart TV with a Macbook Pro that has the Serviio program on it. (both up to date)

Normal mkv files are playing perfectly, but when I add subtitles (.srt) I run in to some problems.

At first the files wouldn't play at all, or if they played, the video froze every few seconds.
To fix this issue, I saved all the subtitle files as utf-8, which worked.

But now I have the issue that I can't pauze the video when there are subtitles there. The TV notices that I press pause (the video timeline shows up) but it keeps playing. It pauzes perfectly when there are no subtitles involved.

Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

Thanks in advance!

By the way, my tv recognises the mkv file as a mpeg file (very weird) with 0 bytes. But it plays. (but doesn't pause / rewind / fast forward etc)
