    I must say I don't know what do I think...
    One hungarian colleague marked on a hungarian forum that also his X9S player has already shown this flashing effect and now he has a Z9X and the situation is changeless.
    I have seen the list of nation I think it is language specific problem and it relates with subtitle encoding of player.
    It seems the player use two different subtitle encode engine(?) because the internal and the external subtitle are shown different font and size. (The characters of external subtitle were visualized bigger size than in internal with factory default settings)
    It's my theory. Correct me if I'm wrong

    Count Bulgarian too. And another 'bug', Bulgarian subs are recognized as Russian. After all cyrillic alphabet originated from Bulgaria, not Russia.

    @Magyar Péter
    Also I don't know .....

    But I don't need to know your language or any other to see the problem of blinking subtitles
    Since the times in the file are correct and the player keeps repeating the same thing for a split second, maybe the programmer will be able to fix it

    The question is whether he will feel like it

    Another remark for the developers from the hungarian forum that worthy to check. May the player is sensitive the break between the rows? If the break between the texts is shorter than 0,2 seconds the flashing effect is more upfront.
    Just a suggestion

    That's a valuable note

    Maybe there is such a thing as sensitivity, range .... The programmer should know

    We'll see if the @mirror replies

    it comes out that they flash in: Polish, Hungarian, Greek, French, Spanish, Turkish, Bulgarian......

    I think we've solved it. Now I'm worried about the eyes of our test engineers

    Don't be shy to report the result. We want to hear problems but also confirmations for things being fixed.

    Of course I will inform you about the result :)

    I hope that the subtitles will not flash now.

    I am glad that the engineers noticed this error, which from what I read was with Zidoo for quite a long time also in older players

    And from the way they complained I had the impression that this was urgent. :D

    I watched 2 movies with external subtitle on new 6.0.90 firmware. The flashing effect really stopped but I think some text has been visualize with some ms delay and I had to correct the delay. I tried the new fw with internal subtitle movies but there visualizing is henceforward perfect.

    Today I watched 2 3-hour films

    I did not notice the blinking of the subtitles.

    I dare to say that version 6.0.90 of the firmware has improved this inconvenience.

    Thank you to the engineers and @mirror for not leaving it, but doing their best

    Good job

    The flashing has stopped, pero some lines stay too long, and some lines have some ms delay.

    Yes, you are right. I have experienced the same. Lot of texts pop up with some ms delay and some texts stay too long and the next lines delay because of it. But it is henceforward with external subtitle. Internal subtitle hasn't flashing and delay.
