DLNA with external subtitles



I'm having trouble getting DLNA to work with external subtitles. I have two main DLNA clients in use.

  1. Playstation 3 (PS3) - everything works great. Subtitles are displayed properly.
  2. Panasonic Blu Ray player - Videos play, but subtitles aren't displayed.

Based on what I've read, it sounds like this might be due to the Panasonic player not having an associated DLNA profile, so subtitles won't get burned in. Is there anything that I can do to confirm that this is the issue? And if it is the issue, would the solution be to create a DLNA profile which transcodes everything, and therefor gets burned-in subtitles?

Thanks in advance!
