Hi.

I have another subtitle related request. There is an option to choose which available subtitle to use (if any) before starting a movie. It would be very nice to be able to change this choice while in movie. I often have multiple subtitles and discover after starting a movie that the one chosen is no good. Currently I have to stop the movie, change subtitle and start it again.

 

The second best option here would be if it at least would be possible to just turn subtitles on or off while in movie.

 

On my LG TV there's a SUBTITLE button that currently does nothing when pressed, it would be the natural choice for these functions.

 

Oh, and apologies if I'm suggesting things that are already there. Haven't found them when searching :-)

Hi there, just click the CC button in the video player. Have you tried this?

Nope, haven't got any button named CC on my remote :-( Is it different on different LG TVs?

edit: This is weird. I have a 43UM7100. Found a picture on my remote on the web https://images-na.ss...YL._SL1500_.jpg. Almost. Except this remote seems to have a CC button where I have a SUBTITLE button. Anyway, a push on my SUBTITLE button does nothing at all while in movie...

 

edit 2: Btw, when I have this up and running the plan is to use it with my Harmony hub. Maybe I can emulate a press on the non-existing CC button from there. If it isn't simply the same code as my SUBTITLE button.

Hi.  The "CC" button is on the screen.  Press "down" during playback and navigate to it on the screen and click it.

Ah! Ok... Then I'll change my feature request slightly: Since there is a subtitle button on the TV remote, would it be possible to map that button directly to the CC function? As it is now, the button is just sitting there on the remote doing nothing.

I'm not sure we can override that button press, but we'll look into it. Thanks.
