Terrible Subtitles system in LG C1


Recommended Posts

I don't understand how a 2021 so-called smart TV that costs +1000$ can have such bad subtitles system for the media player.

1) The subtitles delay can only go in – time. No +. So if the subtitles are too early, you cannot improve it. This seriously makes zero sense. Also, it should be possible to control by 50ms or at least 100ms instead of only half seconds.

2) The font is terribly bad. Not super legible, with inconsistent spacing (the space between letters is sometimes big, sometimes small), and a pretty bad design overall. Samsung allowed to select various fonts.

3) The smallest size possible is still relatively big. Why not give more control options? Maybe selecting the exact size by increments of 2 points instead of 6-7 options.

4)  It should be possible to decide if subtitles have an outline or not, or shadow, just overall more control depending on personal taste and the film one watches. Just color is simply amateurish for this price.

My older and cheaper samsung was so much better on that front. Seriously LG, please improve this in a firmware upgrade. This is not okay for the price of your televisions, it really ruins my film experience.

I got the 77C1 & was surprised with this very basic and easy to fix issues existence, subtitles is low res & pixilated and very apparent in bigger screens, I got some ideas that will improve the experience significantly:

1. At least 5 fonts to choose from.

2. More colors and formats go detailed as possible in adding this feature (opacity, background, window, shadows, outlines,..etc).

3. Find a way to make subs high res or vector as it should be in any media software ever existed I don't know how you managed to mess this up.

4. Font size slider that has more range than the current sizes.

these are some of my suggestions, if I repeated some of the quoted points coz it's important please try to find a solution before ditching the support for C1 to focus on C2 & after

      I would like to update the OS on a relatively old TV (manufactured in 2015). So there are questions: how to find your version, where to download a new one and check its compatibility with my TV?

      Hi all,

      I'm Danny and have a problem with my LG OLED65C8;

      since a few months when playing movies, either from my Syno NAS or just plain USB, subtitles are being displayed double (over or above eachother) or are displayed for sometimes minutes after the sentence's been spoken. The videofiles haven't got any hardcoded subs but either subs included in the mkv container or as separate srt of ssa file. Disabling subs removes the display of subs, enabling subs results in double or persistent subs.

      Subtitles have been disabled in the accessability menu, factory reset did not help.

      I searched but as far as I can see this problem has not been discussed yet, also googled and never came across this problem. Perhaps someone here can help?

      Kind regards, Danny
      ----------------
      SOLUTION, for me at least:

      I used ColorControl to reboot the TV. It's weird that a factory reset did not work but a simple reboot did.

      I have an LG TV with Web OS 13.30.56 and the HBOMax app was replaced by MAX app.
      Since installing the new app I get 50+ per day ads notifications from Max app with the same add, every day , 50 notifications per day.
      I've made a video with the problem to understand it better:

      Hello , There is no setting to select subtitles for series and movies, I tried clicking on the colors on the remote, but nothing worked, I poked around in settings and found nothing. I sent several emails to the company, but no response was received. I remember that there was an option in the previous version, who has the same problem and what can be done?
