mkv is just a "container". The true encoding could be different on the inside, and could be something that isn't supported.

Thanks for your reply
Should I be looking out for a particular file format that will always work with TiVoHD.
Cheers

That's not what I meant. it's the encoding of what's in the mkv that's likely the issue. I rarely have problems with mkv's on my TiVo with the desktop software. But I can see where some would be if someone encoded it with some strange codec.
