  • The video file (movie or series) and subtitle file must be in the same folder.
  • The video file (movie or series) name and the subtitle file must be the same. For instance, if the video file name is The Suicide Squad.AVI, the subtitle file must be The Suicide Squad.SMI. If there are any changes in the name, the subtitle won’t appear on your TV.
  • If the file name and subtitle name are too long, they won’t be detected automatically. Rename the file with a shorter name (within 20 characters).
  • Make sure that you are using the subtitles in the supported format. The supported formats in LG TV are .smi, .dcs, .srt, .sub, .ssa, .ass, .psg, and .txt.
