DMP-BD60K Blu Ray Player and Subtitles

by jim isham / July 9, 2009 4:43 AM PDT

On page 36 of the DMP-BD60K manual are the instructions for setting up the language options.
Near the top of that page it says: "Once you set the audio, SUBTITLE, disc menu and player menu language options, they will be applied automatically every time you watch a movie."
I take this to mean "Set it and forget it".
I'm thinking that I shouldn't have to reset the Subtitle option, or language, to English every time I watch a movie. Am I reading the instructions right?
I have to set the subtitle to English every time I play a disc. I've tried several ways, using the Subtitle, Info or Menu button and it still has to be reset evertytime.

The model number in the above post is wrong. It's a BD-P1600 Blu Ray Player I'm asking about.

jim isham,

You should also be able to pick subtitles when you queue the movie. Does the player not accept those commands as well?

I'm not sure what you mean by "queue the movie". I think you mean when I start to play the movie.
What I am saying is, according to the information on page 36, when I plug the player in for the first time, and turn it on, I should be able to set it for the English subtitle, and then when I go to play movies from that point on, the English subtitles will always be displayed. I should not have to reset the subtitles for English every time I play a movie. That's how I read that sentence.
Another problem I'm trying to check, is that on about half of the movies I play, when the DVD Layer Change takes place, I lose the subtitle and have reset for the English subtitle.
I have a hearing problem and need the subtitles. I'm using an HDMI cable between it and the LN52A850, and as HDMI cables do not send closed captioning to the TV, I have to use the subtitles.

jim isham,

I see what you're saying in regards to page 36. If this isn't happening, I'll address that with the appropriate department. I'll see if I get the same result on my system here.

What I'm saying as an alternative until I can investigate this more thoroughly, the subtitle menu in the Blu-Ray disc's movie menu should also have an option to play subtitles, and if selected will do that.

I don't know why the layer change would cause that issue, but I'll see what I can find out.

Thank you. While watching a movie tonight, the subtitles quit working, at about 1 hour and 8 minutes into the movie. This has happened at least 4 other times in the last 10 days. I assume this was during a layer change, although I didn't see the change which has been a 1 or 2 second freeze on the other movies.
I finally got the subtitle working. One way I did it was to press the Subtitle button. English showed, but it was not working. I pressed the button again and the Spanish Subtitle was indicated, I scrolled through until English appeared again and then the subtitle started working.
