If anyone is managing to play 1080i raw AVCHD-format .mts video files on a 2GHz C2D mini, I'd like to hear how. I'm having limited success playing .mts files on a firewire external (FW400) in VLC. I'd like to be able to do it without dropping frames, and thought it was possible. I can play 1080 Quicktime smoothly, but not .mts at the moment. Andrew.
