I used GOTsent to encode the mkv movie file to an MP4 as it states but instead it split the movie into 2 mkv files, 2.4gb each
What happened to the MP4?

Sentry23, the guy who is making GOTsent, is currently checking out possibilities to transcode files to mpeg2 to get subs working - picture quality suffers from this and it'll surely take more time, but if you're really keen on subs - as a lot of people are over at his regular forum - it's maybe a compromise worth making.
edit; he's also figuring out if it's possible to alter the frame rate, because apparently some people using Xbox360's complain about judder/jitter in the images when viewing stuff in 50Hz

Thanks! I didn't have CCCP installed and now that I installed it, it works perfectly.
Pretty positive that will be a codec issue, you're missing something required to carry out the whole process and are therefore being left with incomplete files. GOTSent is the front end only, it's not an all-in-1-package.
To play it safe, as I said I'd install CCCP - http://www.cccp-project.net/ - It requires what is needed, with things such as Haali Media Splitter (HD codec).
For all those people on their high horses of "CODEC PACKS DAMAGE YOUR PC!!!" come down to reality. CCCP if you read up on it, was made to be lightweight, and require all that's needed to play/watch HD content on your PC. It doesn't install multiple codecs and doesn't interfere with anything.
If you don't want to use it still, I'll dig deeper into specific codecs that are required.
AC3Filter - http://ac3filter.net/ - Is also needed as well if you aren't using the nero AAC codec.
Out of interest as well, http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/, download MediaInfo, and drag and drop your mkv onto it to see what video/audio codec it is using - Just to see if it's anything unusal, not found in a standard MKV rip.

GOTsent Beta-9 Pre-release
Now includes Playable on PS3/360 detection, subs are disabled. Some form of mpeg2 conversion is in there, yet it doesn't work for 360 yet
Download here, but use with care - it's a pre-release of a beta...
Also; Sentry23 announced he's now collaborating with Ditlew - apparently someone with a name in the PSP scene (I do not own one, so I wouldn't know) - they're working on a better h264 detection/implementation, which apparently is almost finished and should make beta10 or beta9, however the former is more likely.
edit; we should really get this topic stickied

I dont have the room for a gazillion boxes that just do one thing each - I want ONE device to handle them all
transcoding is a ballache if you ask me i dont see why people are so interested in playing everything on there ps3, something like the Popcorn Hour makes more sense to me if you dont want to use a pc, it has native mkv support and can read subtitles from mkv as well.

Thanks for this guide! Never heard of any of these programs and was going to just wait for MKV support! Quick note btw GOTSent won't convert an AC3 Audio track in Vista x64 if you don't tick Safe Sync For some reason if you don't it just says conversion done with no output file.
However I must admit I struggled getting MKV2VOB to work, for some reason it outputted the Audio fine to the VOB file but there was no video But GOTSent works anyway so its all good in the end
I just became even more satisfied with my PS3.
I'm playing my MKV files with just streaming!
All I did was install a codec pack, change a few settings and install tversity and stream over my network.
I'm so damn happy with this now.
Oh the guide is here btw:
Scroll down to method B.
