    1. You should check the audio codec from the mkv files, if it's DTS it will not play. AC3, AAC etc will play. Or you external hard drive is not correctly formatted. Try NTFS.

    2. No, subtitles are not supported yet. But there will be an update in week 46 for the 7000 series (2010 & 2011) that support subtitles and the DTS codec in mkv files.

    Is it sure that a firmware update is pending that will add subtitle support in 2010 models?

    Given that this update will become reality , you have the following possibilities to view the subtitles on your TV. Same counts for a computer, since you seem to have problems with MKV-playback on you compuer instead of your TV.

    A) For AVIs you normally have to name the *.SRT-subtitle file exactly the same way like the *.AVI file and place it in the same subfolder where the movie is stored.

    B) For MKVs you normally have to mux the *.SRT-subtitle file into the MKV-container using a program package called MKVtoolnix. It contains MKVmerge. Just open the MKV file in MKVmerge, add the SRT file and merge both files to a new MKV file.


    Concerning your problem:
    "1. I have problems playing mkv files on my computer from an external hard drive?"

    Seems like your computer does not have the neccesary codecs installed. Either download a codec-package and install it or download and install Videolan client, a player which is shipped with all neccesary codecs and which will play nearly every filetype.

    Does the new update support subtitles for the 7000 series? The release notes does not say anything about that?

    Hi,

    just try... e.g. SRT subtitle files are supported via USB. Please be sure that they are in UTF-8 coding...

    movie.avi
    movie.srt
