    40PFL8606H - mkv playback via USB

    Here is an new review on the 40PFL8606H.
    http://www.digitalversus.com/tv-tele...2066/test.html

    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.

    see supported codecs (2010 also apply for 2011): http://www.supportforum.philips.com/...TS-and-Blu-ray)

    Hi

    mkv is not a codec. Its a container, it can "contain" basically everything.
    To see what parts from "everything" will work, look at the link from Toengel's post.

    Hi
    Just to update. I have tried several mkv files and they have all worked except one that didn´t give any sound. I am happy with my TV except for one little detail: The box was missing some crucial screws needed for the stand/wall mount. I wen´t back to the store and they looked in two other unopened TV boxes and these screws were missing in all of them! I had a screw that fitted in my screwbar at home but, I intend to go back to the store soon when they have hopefully got them sent from Philips.
