However, the good news is that it's just a container format! You can demux your MKV and remux it to AVI or MP4 and it will be recognized. This does add a little bit of size to the file with AVI, but nothing too bad. You do need to ensure that the data within the AVI container is compatible with the PS3 before remuxing (H.264, DIVX, XVid made to look like DIVX, and not FLAC or OGG audio) if you want to play it without transcoding. Otherwise, it will need to be transcoded either before you remux it all together or when serving it to the PS3.
Thank you for giving me a reason to get off my behind and finally run my MKV test that I've been wanting to do for days now.
Look-up MKVRemux to make things easier.

If I use MP4 I have to burn the subs onto the video. But you've given me something else to check, so will source some alternative MKV's to try.
So are you saying you have MKV's streaming through PMS with only mux'ing, for AAC+H.264?
