Hi Andreas,

as per your request in the Forum, I'm sending you support Ticket for my problem. As already mentioned in my thread, I'm not able to play MKV containers via Mediaserverstream. Yesterday, I bought a small homeserver solution from HP, which is going to be my local mediacenter. I've saved several DVD movies (mpg/avi - xvid) and bluerays (mkv) on the discs. all media is shown in showtime, just the mkv containers are not in the library. Attached to this Ticket, you find a screenshot of my mediaserver HDD and the showtime library, which I took a few minutes ago.

I don't know if my settings are wrong, but it would be great if you could assist me.

Best regards,

I have no idea what's wrong here. I don't understand what you are trying to say either.

Just to update, I am facing issues with the goto frame with latest build .228. Showtime ends up dead slow, or fails to respond completely. I end up hard rebooting the PS3 to fix this.

Please don't reuse tickets for other stuff... It just confuses things even more.. :(
