Question How do I stop my Samsung MU7000 from defaulting to playing subtitles

Whenever I watch many of my films and TV shows from an external hard drive the TV automatically plays subtitles on each file. It means if I'm watching a series I have to turn them off manually for every episode.

Does anyone know if I can make it a default setting to not play subtitles in the main menu? I can't seem to find anything.

Thanks.

I don't think you are going to find a fix. I have had this issue with the higher model Q9FN and so far found no way to stop it. Exactly what you are experiencing.

If anyone does find a fix to this issue apart from removing the subtitles from the files your playing back via video editing software than I would be interested too.

MKV files are actually multimedia container formats; so a MKV container can incorporate audio, video, and subtitles into a single file—even if those elements use different types of encoding.

Unfortunately, this means when you ask the player to play the MKV 'file', it plays everything within the container...including the subtitles.

Most TV media players are not feature packed enough to include options for disabling various tracks contained within the container, as is the case with the Samsungs; so the only way around this is to remove the subtitle track from the container altogether using a programme like MKVextract.

If you have a lot of files and are any good at coding, you can set up a simple code to run this automatically to save yourself some time.
