    You dont really need any codecs with Win7. Just use windows media player. It supports more than Vista and XP did

    I use VLC and it works fine, WMP would do it too though.

    Sound is 5.1 running through optical to a DTS decoder. Crisp as a crisp thing.

    I'll give it a go I didn't think that vlc or WMP would run a mkv h.264 file at true 1080p playback

    It depends more on your CPU and graphics card, both programs (well WMP12 anyway, I haven't tried WMP11) are quite capable.

    I use Shark007 codec pack to get DTS sound and decent mkv support, player I use is either WMP12 or WMC7
