Video format for home media

I've been using the home media option for a while..went through the small picture in the upper right but that seems to be resolved. What file format is needed. MPG worked ok. Sometime a MKV will work but not often. What do I need to convert MKV files to for this to work or what file formats will work. Can't find that info anywhere.  I used to use MKV2VOB but all I get is "Unsupported audio codec: eac3" Not looking for free software but want something that works and don't have time to try all the apps out there one at a time but have tried a few. What are people using?

 

Thanks
