Question

Enable other audio tracks on mkv/avi files w/ PN598000?

by synapse911 / August 16, 2011 5:55 AM PDT

I have many movies burned to a USB HDD that I watch on my new plasma. Some files have a default language audio track besides english. My previous solution was to use my Western Digital WD HD TV BOX so I could select the appropriate audio track thru its options settings. Is there any way to select alternate audio tracks on my TV for MKV or AVI files that have multiple built-in tracks so I can ditch the WD HD TV altogether? Thanks in advance!

synapse911,

Try pressing the "Tools" button on your remote control while the file is playing. A small bar should appear at the bottom of the TV giving you several options. One of these options is "Audio Language" (3rd from last). Click into this option and it should list all of the available audio tracks on that specific file.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
