Sony BDP-S4100 and S4500 not showing SRT-subtitles

-Ubuntu 16.04
-Serviio 1.6.1
-FFmpeg from repo

Hardware to watch on (Clients), Blu-ray-players:
-Sony BDP-S4100 (Euro model)
-Sony BDP-S4500 (Euro model)

I can see subtitles fine that are inbuilt in MKV-file, but external files are not showing (SRT for example). One post here says it has the the exact opposite problem with S4500, so they do work on some setups.

I can not use burned in subtitles, since it is too old machine (solution is not to buy new).

I am pretty sure they worked before I upgraded Ubuntu from 14.04 --> 16.04

I have followed these instructions --> http://serviio.org/index.php?option=com ... icle&id=33

I installed libASS, but problem is still there.

Any ideas what to do? :roll:

PS: Can anyone else confirm subtitles are working on either of these machines?

These devices don't support srt. You will have to use burned in subs.

Para poder ver los subtítulos en formato .srt en mi Sony KDL-50W805B por DNLA en la configuración de subtítulos de Serviio en lugar de "UTF-8" o "ANSI" yo lo solucione poniendo "windows-1252" sin las comillas, espero que les sirva, saludos!
