subtitle error message when compiling: SST_Script_parser (Entry#1 and Entry#0 overlapped)

Hello guys,

nice to have this forum here.


I'm authoring a new 24p BD & tried to add a subtitle script to one of the movie segments.


When compiling I got the following error message:

"Multiplexing the assets has failed Error : SST_Script_parser (Entry#1 and Entry#0 overlapped)"

Doesn't know what's going wrong? Any suggestions?

It seems the parser is not able to read the script. Is there anything in the script I didn't recognize?

I did a little research here in the forum area to find out if there happened similar but fixed issues. As long as I searched for none of the suggestions will fix it.


The usual suspects are not present! ;)

Timings seems to be ok!

Fps-rate in script header is set correct!


I would be really thankful for fast answers!

Looks good to me.  Except...the file name may be too long.  Others have had that problem.  Also, the underscore may (or may not) be a problem.  Are you using tabs or spaces between fields?  If tabs, the tab code may be confusing the parser.

Don't know if the header entries have to be in a specific order (shouldn't, but...).  I copied from their example and have:



That's all I can think of.  Hope this helps.

The hint to change TABS to SPACES helped me!
THX Paul!


Andreas Gumm

To close this issue finally I would like to share the solution:

I found out there was two tabs between some items in the topline!

The whole spotting list is still separated by a tab step & it works fine.


Thank you again, Paul!


Hi Folks,

Just having this problem myself. I don't understand your solution, Andreas. Yes, I see that some of the top line items are separated by two tabs, and some by one. But that is also the case with some of my .Dost documents that work... but this one keeps giving me the "overlapped" error. I feel like I've tried everything. Any help appreciated.




Hi Rob,
that's interesting that you are faced now by the issue.
Have you tried to replace spaces by tabs?
I have in mind that Subtile Edit creates perfect DOST files. I'm always checking these exports by the script tool and export it again to stay most conform to the expected format.

How ist your workflow?



My client provided the problem file. Then I started trying to cut his data into a known good .dost. But the "overlapped" problem follows.

Then I tried opening the problem file with Subtitle Edit. But the exported file still has the error.

What does the Sony script checking tool say?
Have you got the text script too?

I'm not sure what you mean.

Oh sorry, it's the DoStudio Scripting Assistent! ;)
I do always confom subtitle scripts.

Get it from here:


Hi Rob Anderson,

Here is a subtitle .dost file that is confirmed valid. Please review for formatting states.




Thank you Andreas and Rob!

The scripting Assistant indicated that zeros were missing in the fadein and fadeout columns! So now I'm able to build the disc with the subtitles!

New problem is that the subtitles get earlier and earlier as the hour-long program progresses. Any ideas on the cause or fix for this? It is a 23976 film. An identical .son works perfectly on the DVD of this film.

Many thanks,



Try setting the $DROP to 24000 even though your video and sub creation is 23.976

From a previous post:

Create subs matched to your 23.976 asset. This will give you a DOST file with a setting of 23976 in the head of the file. Open the DOST file in a plain text editor and change this to 24000.

Use this revised DOST file in DoStudio and it should then all fit.

Give it a try to see of the sync improves.
