Issues with .MKV file playbacks

If you are experiencing problems with .MKV files playing back smoothly, stopping, the status bar remaining on the screen, or other playback related problems with this file format, please download the latest MediaMVP-HD Beta application, version 1.1.14 or later. This version addresses issues playing MKV files.

When connected HDMI and changing sources on my TV set, I sometimes get a “no signal” message and must reset the power on the Media MVP HD to regain the picture?

Switching sources on some TV sets may disrupt the Media MVP HD stream and result in this problem. Simply turning the power on and off using the MVP’s remote control will reset the signal. The latest MediaMVP-HD Beta application, version 1.1.14 or later fixes this problem.
