My Boxee Box slows down when streaming .mkv files. Any way to force TV Shows to download .avi or .mp4 and ignore .mkv? Been using TV Shows for years, love it!!

    Hi Greg,

    .mkv is the standard for HD episodes... if you don't want them, just uncheck the HD option for every subscription ;)

    Thanks Cristina, I wasn't sure if that would do it. I'll try it.
