level 4.2 & dual-audio mkvs
Got this error yesterday:
Force cell decoder into level 4.2 even if content is 5.x
The avi was very laggy.
And also, will there be an option for auto selection of audio with mkv files on future updates? Some animes are dual-audio, and it's better listening to original Japanese dubs.

Go to language settings:
In audio put "jap" and in subtitles put "eng"
This will make english subtitles and japanese audio the defaults when playing files.
The "Force cell decoder into level 4.2 even if content is 5.x" error means that h264 video streams with a profile higher than 4.2 may not play (PS3's cell decoder doesn't support it, but Showtime will force it to try anyway, and sometimes it works but it usually does not). The only way to fix this is to re-encode the video track to h264 with a profile of 4.2 or lower. I suggest using mkvextract (a tool in mkvtoolnix) to extract the .h264 track to it's own file, then re-encode it using MeGUI using profile 4.2/PS3.
If you need additional help re-encoding with those tools, you can post here and I will assist you.
NOTE: I see you said .AVI file. People don't usually have h264 video streams in them (AVI is a really old container format). The tools I listed above are for .MKV, however you should be able to input your .avi into mkvmerge, to make it into a .MKV, then you can follow the steps with the tools above.
