There is an official test suite of mkv files on the matroska homepage available (http://www.matroska.org/downloads/test_w1.html). Those eight files are intended to test a set of minimum features players should handle.

Last year I posted a topic where I described the results with firmware version 1.09 (http://www.supportforum.philips.com/en/showthread.php?2718-BDP-7600-Results-with-official-mkv-test-suite-files). Because the thread has been closed I had to start a new one to describe the results with firmware versions 1.35 and 1.42 (see below). (For an easier reference I also include the results with firmware version 1.09.)

Unfortunately there hasn't been a notable improvement since 1.09 (in fact things got worse between 1.35 and 1.42). I guess that results that have been changed are more or less a side effect of other firmware changes. So I'm not really sure if anybody at Philips really cares about things that are mentioned here (see also my other postings). At least if it deals with MKV.

Below the terms Unchanged and New refer to the previous firmware version.
