UN55B7000WF 55'' LED TV AUDIO CODEC ISSUE?? C'mon Samsung!

Whats the deal with the samsung media player thing not reading the audio on my mkv files from my external device? I read some post where it was said that we would have to re-encode all of .mkv files in order to watch them? Whats up with that? I bought a 55'' LCD TV earlier this week and I was having trouble with the AUTO MOTION settings with picture skipping. Now the funny thing is (well not so funny) When I would hook up my USB external Hard Drive to the TV, it read every single MKV file and PLAYED BOTH THE AUDIO AND THE VIDEO, with no problem ON EVERY SINGLE FILE. But since I was having problem with the picture, I took the television back to my local Fry's out here in vegas, and spent about $120 bucks more and got me an LED 55'' SAMSUNG. Now the picture with the auto motion looks great, but when I hook up my USB external hard drive to this tv (UN55B700WF) it doesnt find the audio codec.

How can samsung offer the codec on one TV and not the other?

How can samsung not be developing an audio codec update for rhe TV, when they have the codec on other TVs?

Please help me out.
