Here is an new review on the 40PFL8606H.

It gets good review but I am concerned about this point:

"The media player itself was something of a disappointment. During our tests, it didn't recognise any of our MKV files, nor could it cope with chapters or subtitle tracks."

However the leaflet on the philips homepage says: (http://download.p4c.philips.com/file...12_pss_aen.pdf)

Multimedia Applications
• Video Playback Formats: Codec support:,
Containers: AVI, MKV, H264/MPEG-4 AVC,
MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, WMV9/VC1

Will this be fixed in the next software upgrade?

Has anyone tried to play mkv files from flash drive via USB?

Regards.
