OK so thanks to all the folks here that has helped me upgrade my video system from avi(crappy vision) to M2TS (HD!). I now have a few more questions.. 1) is there a way to play M2TS files on Snow Leopard..Please dont say VLC, tried that and it failed miserably, unless there is some new setting out there. I now play them on my ps3, but i was thinking I might want to take them on the plane or something.. Anyways I know windows 7 can play it standard, but i really dont like using boot camp, you know. 2) I have scoured the earth looking for a hd torrent tracker that has an open registration.. no damn luck at all. can somebody point me in the right direction.. or just hook a brotha up with ahhh....invaa...you know..firstname.lastname@example.org 3)Is there anybody out there still making firewire ports.. whats the latest? I want to get another 1tb but I live in china and finding a firewire port case is next to impossible, makes me wonder if they are even still being made. thanks, you guys are awesome.
