That's really a bad thing with selection of audio and other basic stuff.
Not even to point the starting point of the video you can select with time (at least on my 52PFL8605D).
If the TV freeze, very nice to see the whole video again over DLNA, usb at least has forwarding but not to set start poin as mentioned.
I have a 32'' BGH low cost tv which read almost everything (a part from the well know compression error which almost every
seller had at the beginning) and has all the nice features.
In fact I don't know because Philips does not implement so basic features!!
DTS support, ok could be a price tackle but with the price of this TV no comment...
But all the rest, please, has nothing to do with prices nor with other problems.
Guys do you need a linux "developer" which compiles all the nice libraries for you?
You don't have to reinvent the wheel, did you know that?
My 2 cents about this thread ...
DVB-S(et al) use MPEG4-TS and a preferred audio language can be set and lang switching is supported during 'playback'. MKV is just a different container, preliminary MKV-container support is in place, rest can be adopted easily one to one from DVB-X. Should be trivial for an experienced dev team.

I really don't understand why is it so hard to fix those minor issues. Other brands solved this long time ago.
Dear Philips representatives.
It's been almost a year and a half since the first post on the subject.
Obviously, many of us customers want to choose one of multiple possible sound channels on an mkv file.
Why is this taking so much time ? Are you planning to release a software update to support this feature ?
My 47psl4007h feels like a poor investment.
Please answer. Give us something...
same problem with 24pfl3507, update firmware, please! And a free working media server for mac! I have twonky but isn't free
Twonky is free. Register your TV with Philips and you will get a SN. Search the form. There is a topic about this.

More than one year, more than 4 or 5 updates and still nothing. Thats really weak philips.
we need both the options to choose audio track and also to be able to choose subtitle when you actually add support for subtitles using DLNA which is VERY important!
Adding DTS support was be awesome as well but I am guessing that's to expensive :(
But at least give us subtitles under DLNA!
just bought my 6007, great picture quality but at the first dlna fire up it just crashed so i made an software update. it works now put but the missing multi audio and dts support is just ridiculous. subs are working properly.
i thought it was part of the dlna codec, just like fast forward and reverse which also doesn't work
+1k for this topic
ps.: also chatted with the support, she said she forwards my beggings to the software-devs, you should also do this
i am using serviio on my nas, but it has no transcoding options for audio-tracks
i'm glad i paid 500€ off list for that useless piece of network-crap
seems like i have to buy a raspberry pi and istall xbmc or open-elec for proper network streaming
god dammit even lg got that :/
I recently bought my Philips TV set and felt really disappointed when I realized that I could not change the audio channel of mkv video files, and sometimes I got a "Not supported audio format" error message and there was no sound at all, (I assume because the default audio channel was in DTS format).
But, as I read the present topic, I must say that the most disappointing thing is that, after more than 1 year from the first post, Philips seem to have no intention to solve these issues that are absolutely necessary and implemented by other (even cheaper) devices.
It's a pitty.
