I have a Nov.07 build of a Samsung BD5000 that I'm pretty satisfied with and am now considering purchasing a flash based HD AVCHD camcorder such as the new Canon Vixia HF10 and am wondering if anyone has had any success playing back a DVD with the AVCHD files burnt on them in 1080p or 1080i?
Canon and Sony sell portable standalone burners that connect to their camcorders and which can burn these AVCHD files in full HD on a regular DVD which can then be played back in full HD on a PS3 and supposedly on any Blu Ray player.
Any advice will be deeply appreciated.
Thanks.

You can create an AVCHD test disc using the one found in the calibration forum. AFAIK, the only Blu-Ray players that support AVCHD are the Panasonics, the Sony standalones and the PS3. The Samsung standalones don't.

Do you think that this can be changed in the future by a firmware update or does the player have the required hardware?

I think it is just a firmware issue. AVCHD does not require anything new hardware wise to play them back. The AVCHD file format even mimic BD movie file format so the firmware fix should be extremely easy to implement.

Title says it. I thought the licensing agreement stipulated that both AVC and VC-1 decoding was mandatory in all players carrying the Blu-ray logo.

AVC is a video compression method. AVCHD is a file format that is used by HD Camcorders. BTW, the latest Samsung BD-P2550 manual states support of AVCHD as well as BD-R/RE discs. Hopefully, we will see them trickle download 5000 firmware.

Has anyone burned a disc using the avchd format from a HD camcorder to see if it will play in the BD-UP5000?

HD nut
