I think it's safe to say that mkv is driving me crazy. No matter what I try or do, there is always something wrong which makes enjoying something related to mkv impossible.
Everytime when I try to play a mkv. file on MPC it gets all choppy which leaves the audio and video totally out of sync in a few seconds and I think it got even worse when I switched the output to VMR9 which I need to watch subtitles.
Is there any way to stop making it all choppy and out of sync without switching to VLC, GOM, Winamp, Itunes or any other player that will eventually bring even more problems?

What does your CPU utilization look like when you're watching? What kind of video codecs are in your mkv files?

My first thought is that you aren't set up for hardware accelerated decoding of whatever kind of codec is in the file.

Are you changing refresh rates? Which video filter are you trying to use?

I realize you don't wont any more problems with player/splitter/filters, but in order to accomplish that I think you should go ahead and just switch to XBMC. Handles mkv, hd audio, chapter skips, and subtitles with ease

MPC-HC handles mkv just fine.

You should switch to EVR (CP) for the video renderer and see how that works out.

What splitter are you using? What are the specs of your HTPC? Where did you ascertain this mkv?

It could be a bad encode but if it is occurring on all of them then it something in you system that is the issue.
