I have this HP USB drive (16GB, NTFS formatted) that has, a MKV video. The USB is always detectable, so is the MKV, but when I connect that USB drive with that MKV video on my HT-C5530 home cinema USB port, the playback just suddenly stops after random time, and it returns to the main menu when I can see the pen and it's contents.
I really have no clue about what could be the issue here, has someone else experience something similar? That may help me out on this.
My computer plays the mkv, I confess I didn't have the opportunity to watch it all and see if it all goes well until the end, but while I was watching, all went well.
Do you receive any sort of error message when it stops? No. Nothing at all. It quits, and returns to the pen root list.
Do other MKV files play on your home cinema without problems? No. The same issue occurs. Other codecs used.
Does this file work if on a different USB drive? It's the only usb drive that I have that supports more then 4gb on one file. This happened before, on another formats, with another USB drive.
Have you tried it on a different home cinema or TV with USB capability? No. The best I was able to do is to play it on the PC. It's not the same but still.
Additional Info: On the manual it says:
Supported Video Codecs VC-1 AP DivX 5.1/6.0 XviD H.264 BP/MP/HP
Supported Audio Codecs MP3 AC3 DTS
Since I tried other two MKV with diferent codecs, but the result was the same, I take out that THAT is not an mkv format issue.
Update 2: I will try, on another TV with HDMI support, and see what I get.
Update 3: Solved on the comments. ;)
