    Off topic but mkvs won't support all of the menus, extras, etc at the same time, AFAIK. Also repacking to mkv is a lot of extra work for blu-ray rentals. Unfortunately windows provides a better WAF for this important format (the best quality available for premium content).

      It also sounds like quicksync encoding doesn't work yet, but Intel is committed to adding it which is a plus :-)
