    I've been trying to play MKVs with a selection of audio tracks (is that the correct term?), regular soundtrack, directors commentary, 2nd language, that sort of thing) and cannot find a way to select the track.

    Ideally I would like to play USB to LG BP33 or MKV burned to BD, so I don't have to do any converting or authoring. When I play off the stick or BD audio and video are all good but I can't select the audio tracks, defaults to track 1. I know there are multiple tracks, can play them on PC using VLC. Docs have not been helpful.

    I am using LG BP33 converted to all region and Panasonic Viera 50" Plasma. Play sound through DAC to my stereo, but have the same issue when sound straight into screen. There is simply no menu that I have found to select tracks.

    Have you every watched your grandparents use an ATM? That is about where I am with this stuff. Been watching movies on my computer so long I am clueless about everything else. I want to avoid using my PC as a media server.

    Thanks in advance, sorry if this is a common problem.

    Install MediaInfo and open one of your problem MKV files with it. Post back here everything it says so we can see what format your audio tracks are in. There might be a problem with the audio being in an unsupported format or there's also a chance that this player simply doesn't support multiple audio tracks in MKV files and can only play the first one.

    Thanks, printout below. I think the commentary tracks are 3 and 4
    FYI -- the MKV has no menu, it is not authored in any way, just a stream starting with the start of the movie, ends with end of movie. As I said I can see the multiple tracks using VLC
