    Default ATV reboots while paying HD

    Hi, I downloaded a video in HD 720p (MKV FORMAT) an put it in /Users/frontrow/Movies and access to it through "Files" in my ATV menu. And when I start playing it the apple tv stops, like not working but shows an image and then it reboots. Does anyone know whats going on?

    Do you have the Perian drivers ? Did you try the video on your Mac ?

    I've found this happens alot with the current Perian release.

    A lot of MKV files from the net, are encoded with H.264 using a level of 5.1, which is totally uneccessary and I'm sure is something to do with the problem, as files i've played that are not 5.1 don't appear to cause this problem.

    it however may just be coincidence.

    AppleTV does not support 720p in mkv format.
