[QUOTE=Complication;2203354]Might I suggest you try just fixing the time codes on the MPEG2 stream instead:
Re-encoding to H264 or Xvid will almost always result in degraded image quality. This is especially true with DVDFab because it is geared toward mobile devices and processing speed rather than image quality. Even if you could tune DVDFab for home theater use, retaining image quality requires great amounts of processor power and time.
The question is, why are you trying to use MKV specifically? It is popular on the Internet because the videos need to be compressed for sharing. If all you want to do is retain DVD features like chapters and subtitles then I’d suggest investing in a playback device that will play the DVD folder or ISO directly (i.e. Popcorn Hour).

Thanks for your response.
The issue with the WD TV I am having with vob files is not so much a/v sync, but unable to fast forward or reverse to a specific scene. I am able to fast forward & reverse, but when you get to the scene you wanted and select play it jumps to a totally different scene. This has more to do with the media server than the encoding. This issue does not happen with mkv files nor avi files which is why I was trying to use those files instead. However as it’s being pointed out here the resolution of those files is not the same as a vob.
Solution you suggest of PCH A-110 is on my list to look at. My understanding is this device does not have this issue with vob files. I don’t care about have a complete iso working, since all I want is the movie with any surround sound and forced subtitles. I rather save the space.
The PCH is my understanding is more of a streamer. I know you can put your own internal hard drive in it, but I am not sure if it can take any external drives via usb or firwire. I only watch my movies in one room, so streaming is not a big benifit for me. I also don’t care for having a PC on in another room everytime I want to watch a movie.
Now if I can connect an external drive directly to a router and beam it to the PCH I might consider that.(By-pass having to have a PC on). I have not looked to see if I can do that.
