Hello everyone. I've converted two of my DVDs to MKVs using the program MakeMKV. Unfortunately, I don't get any sound on my Apple TV when playing the files through XBMC. The files sound great when played through my PC and through my PS3. Not sure why XBMC is having an issue with them.

Not sure what other info to provide, I suspect this make be a common issue - Do I need some kind of Codec? Its tough to work on XBMC through the Apple TV.

XBMC is a really great program. Thanks for your help.

No additional codecs needed for XBMC. Run MediaInfo on the mkv and tell us what it says. Maybe upload a debug log too.

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Add-on:YouTube]] = Add-on:YouTube, [[Adding videos to the library]] = Adding videos to the library, [[userdata]] = userdata, etc
