Hi,

I have mkv files generated by tvheadend that do play well using ffplay, 
vlc or xbmc but that fails using any hardware DMP. I used mkvalidate to 
find possible errors but discovered using mkvinfo that one of the major 
problem is that the CodecPrivate field used for V_MPEG4/ISO/AVC contains 
only garbage.

mkvclean or mkvmerge could also fix it while remuxing ;-)
