I have been using my Roku 2 and nowhereman's USB for about year now and all my mkv files have played with Audio and Video, now suddenly after not using it in 3 days I can no longer get any of the same mkv files to play anymore,
I've always used the same 500GB WD Passport USB drive, the Mkv files I just watched successfully last week and months earlier that I know worked suddenly no longer play with audio (video only), it's like some black magic update over night killed it, is there a Roku system update? I'd say it can't be a Nowhere USB channel update since I did try Roku's player and same issue there suddenly as well, anyone else having the same trouble suddenly and found a Solution? mp4 files work fine, just not MKVs
the strange thing I did notice also coinciding with the loss of audio is that now in nowhere USB is that my drive used to be seen as "unknown", now it says "WD Passport"
Make sure your Roku is still set to surround sound (Settings->Audio mode->Surround sound). The recent firmware update reset that to stereo for some users. When set to stereo, files that only have 5.1 audio will not play audio.
