    Default Blu-Ray players and MKV files?

    I bought a Blu-Ray player at the weekend as our dvd player has finally given up the ghost.

    My father-in-law came over and as I'm yet to buy any HD films, he brought and external hard drive from his media centre for me to test out streaming HD films from my mac to the Blu-Ray player. All of the films on his HDD are .MKV files and play perfectly on my mac but when streamed to the Blu-Ray player the films play with subtitles on (it wont let me turn them off) and I cant fast forward or rewind!? Does anyone know why this happens or how to stop it?

    If it matters, the setup is:
    Sony BDP-S480 Blu-Ray Player Connected to Sky router via Ethernet.
    2011 iMac 27" 3.2GHz Intel i3, 4Gb RAM running PS3 DLNA media server. Connected wirelessly to sky router.

    Are the subtitles not hardcoded onto the .MKV file or in the same folder, did you try and delete the sub folder ?

    There is no subfolder (unless it's hidden) it's just one folder called 'HD FILMS' with 30 or 40 MKV files.

    When played on my mac through VLC palyer, the films play fine, no subtitles & I can scan through the film. When streaming, if I try to fast forward, I get a message on screen saying "this feature is currently unavailable". I've got a couple of MP4 files which stream without issue.

    I set the DLNA to show hidden files which gives you access to various versions of the mkv files (one of which is subtitle free) but still wont allow me to fast forward or rewind the film as it's playing.
