Recently I download a movie (h.264 1280×720) .mkv, so I was wondering is there a way I can play MKV files on DVD player so I can watch it in HD quality. Searched high and low, some guys gave me some clues. Some DVD players that support Divx3.11, DIVX5 and Xvid mention they support HD and 1080p upscaling, but it seems that there is not any DVD players that support MKV.
So, how can you do it? The thing will be much easier, if you convert MKV files to AVI encoded with XVID and MP3/AC3 applying a professional video converting program.

Additional Tips: If your DVD player lacks ability to support AVI format, you will need to burn it to a DVD disc with a professional DVD authoring program like Nero. Learn how to burn AVI to DVD with Nero:
For NeroVision, I suppose you don’t want a data disc with an avi-file but a “real” Video-DVD in compatible DVD-format. For that you will need Nero Video. In the “Create & Export” menu, choose DVD- DVD-Video, then import the .avi-file and follow the instructions. You can either create a menu and chapters, or just make a simple DVD without menu and one video. In the final step, NeroVideo will either write the necessary DVD structure on a DVD or to a folder on your hard disk. If you used NeroVision before, it should be easy for you because NeroVideo is very similar.
