Display two subtitles with the same timestamp

Is it possible to fix this problem?
For example when it comes to this:

00:01:08,560 → 00:01:11,240
because I thought you Rain Man types were super good at counting.

00:01:08,560 → 00:01:11,240
{\an8}Autistic Raymond is a math whiz in “Rain Man”

Then it can only display the second line. The first line -“because I…counting” won’t show up.

Hi, the tags in srt format subtitle can be read in 7.5.7. However, when there are two lines containing the same timestamp such as one have no tag and one with top tags, then there will be only one single line shown, the other one disappears.


Both on iPhone and iPad (both latest version of iPadOS and iOS), when I stream from my Plex media server using Infuse the external subtitles overlapping timestamps do not work.

Here is an example of the external subtitle:

00:09:39,800 → 00:09:43,810
[Sanji szobája előtt]

00:09:40,290 → 00:09:41,390
Hol van Sanji?

As you can see the timestamps overlap, however, line 153 dissappears at the starting timestamp of line 154, and does not appear after the ending timestamp of 154, even though 153 should be on the screen for a longer period of time.

This is quite frustrating when subtitles should tell you the location of the scene, or the info about a certain character, but it only appears for a split second.

Is there a way to have both lines displayed on the screen at the same time?

Thanks in advance!
