Playing MKV files on my Sony Blu Ray
Posted 08 February 2011 - 04:02 PM
I notice the unit can play mkv files on a USB memory stick but it won't recongize or even see mkv files on my laptop that it sees on the wireless network even though it sees avi files in the same directory.
Was wondering if there was a way for the blu ray to see the mkv files on the laptop?

A firmware update last summer provided some DLNA support, but it's basically limited to one or two file formats.
So, I don't think you can get MKV to work via your laptop unless you use PlayOn or TVersity or something else.
I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

for now, I'll buy a bigger pen drive. Nice and easier that way.
thanks for clearing that up.

I am wondering if anyone else has used a memory stick with an MKV file larger than 4 Gigs.
(and is streaming the only option if this is the case)?
