Philips Blu Ray Bdp2700/05 -MKV?

Just got this unit from Adsa:

Philips Blu Ray Bdp2700/05 | Blu-ray Player | ASDA direct

I was hoping it would play mkv files but no luck, even if I change the mkv extension to avi, which was suggested for a different Philips model in another thread. Will Philips be likely to issue a software update to enable this in the future or as I suspect will I have to change it for a more expensive model. By the way,the upscaling capabilities to my eyes looks great. Any advice much appreciated.

Thanks.
