    You can't play any mkv files on a dvd player,you will have to buy a blu-ray player to play mkv files.

    thanks for your input.

    now what are the solutions available for me? as you said i should buy bluRay player and that is not possible now.

    Can i convert from mkv to any other format like mp4 or avi and will it play?
    if yes, wont i loose video or audio quality? and what parameters i should choose for optimal result.

    can i use android box for playing mkv files (offcourse with sound coming from home theater speakers)?

    or any cheap (in therms of cost) solution..?

    And it didn't come with a user guide or instructions telling you what formats can be played?
    Take it back for a refund and buy something else.

    If its a DVD player try avi with xvid video and mp3 audio. Without a model number can't help much more. My Curtis doesn't have mpeg4 documented but it does indeed play them.
    if all else fails read the manual

    is it possible to play video via TV's usb and output audio to home theater via TOSLINK?
