giannello,

I'll be happy to forward this up, but unfortunately, I'm not aware of any plans when it comes to upgrading features like this until they arrive.

Thanks for you reply, HD_Tech.
Actually, is not a "feature upgrade", but it should be treated as "bug fixing".
There is a workaround for this: unmerging the MKV file and merging it again without header compression creates a readable file, but it's a quite annoying and time consuming procedure.

Why not create your MKVs in a compatible format the first time? Many try the highest or other than what works compression settings and then want it to play everywhere. The awful truth is that a TV is not a PC so changes and upgrades to support a new compression or setting may take a long time.

Because this problem occurred since last mkvmerge software update.
It's not caused by a faulty *codec*, if you read the link in my first post you'll understand why this is happening.
The awful truth is that big companies (like Samsung) treat TVs like computers (linux-based operating system, web browsing, media player, downloadable applications) in a marketing-wise fashion, without an appropriate updates policy.
I used to own a Popcorn Hour media player, I sold it when I bought my LE40B650 because the TV had the same media functions. Now, Popcorn Hour provides monthly updates, and this bug is almost fixed, while is not clear what Samsung will do to face this issue (because this IS a Samsung's problem with MKV implementation)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
