I've done forced subtitles in mkv with Taken, no problem.
You need to make sure you actually have created a forced sub file to include when you create your mkv.
I run the english subtitle file extracted by Hd-dvd bluray stream extracter through BDSup2Sub. BDSup2Sub will tell you if there are any forced subs. If so, you can save just the forced subs. then include this file with the audio and video files when using mkvmerge. You should be good.
just re-read you post - sounds like the mkv is built correctly as you get the forced subs in vlc. Sorry, I don't have any expereince with media portal. Does sound like a player config issue though.
