I don't have my 10v yet but I can pretty much guarantee that the High bitrates contained in the MKV will cause issues for playback. You can reduce the bitrate encoding to WMV HD to 8MBPS for 720 movies and still retain the quality.
If anyone is interested in testing I can supply a link to something I have encoded to test on your system.

A few pointers - use MPC-HC.
1) Mixing codec packs is bad - don't do it you will just screw up windows, in fact avoid using the K-Lite packs if possible and stick to CCCP if you really need the small few extras it adds.
2) MPC-HC does not need codec packs! the same codecs in ffdshow (that make up the core of various codec packs) are burned into MPC-HC you are just installing duplicate codecs that will do nothing as MPC-HC must be configured to disable its internal codecs in order for directshow codecs to work (some of those codec packs may even try to disable the codecs of MPC-HC without telling you).
3) Core AVC is the best option for H.264 decoding if you disable the H.264 decoder in MPC-HC - options->internal filters untick H.264 (FFmpeg) & H.264 (DXVA) it will kick in and take over H.264 decoding in MPC-HC.
4) To see subtitles switch to the EVR render mode found under options->output in MPC-HC
5) Installing codec packs is pointless on Windows 7 WMP/WMC will not use them and their native codecs are DXVA enabled anyway though with the crappy driver support for the GMA500 DXVA is hit & miss. If your DXVA is working you can use the DivX MKV Win7 plugin to enable playback of MKV within WMP12 or WMC7. Or just use MPC-HC as it has DXVA support or pair it with CoreAVC.
(The DivX MKV is just an MKV splitter not a codec, the decoding duties are being done by the built in codecs native to Windows 7)
