I also noticed that it sometimes takes a couple of seconds for the audio to stop if you stop Netflix video playback. Not a problem, just strange.
On the second item, you didn't have the screen setting > Screen Format to Full rather than Normal. Normal keeps aspect ratio. Full attempts to scale it to fit the screen.
According to MediaInfo, the resolution of the clip is 1280x536, 2.40:1. It was squished horizontally to about half the screen with bars on the side and stretched vertically to fill the screen top to bottom. The clip plays properly on everything else I've tried it on. On the other hand, I tried another drive containing that and some other clips and all of the other ones played properly.
I tried playing a bunch of different MKV files served from my PC via TVersity; all play properly on the PS3 (I think). For most of them the video played; the audio played for maybe a quarter of them. It seemed to be unable to deal with 1.5 Mbps audio--sometimes it recognized the encoding (i.e., Dolby or DTS) and sometimes not, but it never played it. It was happy with 640 Kpbs or lower DD and DTS. Of course, there's no fast forward or rewind function with these files or files on USB but that's true of the Panasonic as well. Disturbingly I managed to get it into a jammed up state while attempting to play these DLNA served files 3 or 4 times which I had to unplug it to get out of (could be particularly annoying since it has a fixed power cable; I can easily access the place where I have it plugged in). Again, I don't actually have a real use for these functions inasmuch as I play such files on my PC, but the flakiness in this area is a bit concerning. To its credit, it probably did better than the Panasonic for DLNA, though I don't think that I've ever jammed the Panasonic up doing anything.
