Can anyone tell me of BD players that can play MKV files burnt on DVD discs?

Until recently I have been backing up my Blu-ray library as mkv files, converted from the original discs for my personal use and my children's.

At first I used an LG BD-390 player, which seemed to play everything you three at it. But then things got difficult with 3D films, because the LG refused to play two-screen subtitles.

My first option for that was the WD TV media player, but soon I realized the WD does not accept external optical sources, only HDDs.

So I went looking again, and it seemed the Pioneer BDP-140 could be a likely replacement. Alternative firmware had to used, though, because it was a bit limited subtitle-wise "as is".

But later it proved also picky on what mkv files it did play.

My greatest problem in many modern BD players is Cinavia, which apparently blocks BD copies, even if for personal use.

What options do you suggest?
