Media Center, MKV and multiple languages

I love to use Win 7 Media Center (x64) to view my MKV files, but some MKV's have more than one language. How do I make WMC play the language I want? I am using the DVIX codec and the file plays English fine in the DVIX player. Since it gives the option for language. Is there options that I can change to force english?

you will have to uninstall the DivX software (all of it) and any other codecs you installed such as AC3Filter.

Install the Win7codecs + the x64Components addon.
Open the 64bit Settings Application once, and close it.
When you play your MKV in Media Center, there will be white icon in the systray (near the clock) that you can rightclick and choose a different language.

Just a heads up for the future...
If you have problems with MKV's in general or with audio and aspect ratio's,
choose to disable the DivX MF splitter on the MKV TAB will fix those problems.
