Clarification Request
You're right.

It is an audio code (CODEC) issue. Since we can't change the decoding in the TV we have to re-encode content to what works. And here's the hard part. From model to model, said encoding may work on one but not the next. This makes it impossible for anyone to nail down exactly which encoding to use.

Now a little correction is needed. MKV is not a format, it's a container for content. As such MKV is fully supported but what you toss into said container may not be supported.

Sorry if this is confusing but it is at first.

In its current encoding, most likely never.

At least on this TV. If you follow the discussions, not once have I seen an update to add more decoding. I've seen some loss of CODEC (decoding) support but encoding and how things work is hard on those that are new to this.

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
