Samsung LE40B651 mkv and dlna

Hi,

I'm trying to read .mkv files on my samsung TV through a Twonkymedia server.
For .avi it works fine but not for .mkv.

The first problem is that I cannot see .mkv files in the file list, even with twonkymedia server browser interface.
Can someone tell me what I have to do?

Thank's a lot
lungo

There's a post in the Internet Ready TVs forum that shows how to modify the clients.db file entry for the TV so that it works for mkv files.

Thank you, but I have already tryed this way.
My first question is how to see mkv files in the Twonkymedia server manager. Because I think that if the server cannot see mkv, it's hard to access them via my Samsung TV.
Must I rename files or is it other ways?

Thank you for your help

Take a look at my posts in that thread, I have the same TV (ok, it's the 652, but that's literally cosmetic differences) and the changes I post work.

Then check that you've put your MKV files where Twonky is configured to scan for them - the web interface will allow you to check that.
