I have tried using an external USB hard drive, and streaming it over the network, and had the problem both ways, and with two different .mkv files.
It's not all .mkv files though, some play perfectly fine, but for some reason on these two in particular, the preview in the file browser UI works just fine, but selecting it causes the system to lock up or freeze up displaying only a black screen, and becoming completely unresponsive to any remote control commands.
It doesn't make sense to me, if it's able to show a preview of the video in the file browser UI, it is obviously able to decode the video, and obviously the video file is good, so why would it not work when played normally?
