One more question: did you set up your video card frequency to 60Hz before
transfer video to TV from laptop? Should I in my PAL country set up freq. to 50Hz?
As far as transfer method, it doesn't matter. You can either copy/paste entire file structure from internal memory to external memory, then to computer, or use cable and software. Both preserve the file structure needed in order for the 700 to play the files it created.
I believe I mentioned that I have not hooked up my laptop to my TV and watched any 700 footage yet. I merely stated what I had heard on that subject and what I understood about the issue. I can't see how that could be a problem as long as your laptop was able to play the 700's files without issue (and I think there are plenty reporting playback of 1080 60p files with issues, even on desktop machines with great specs).
I think I'm with the majority here who believe that playing 1080 60p files as well as editing them will soon become much easier and issue free once 'technology' catches up. By that I mean that hardware and software designers will soon be releasing products and software that handle 1080 60p files just as simply as 1080 60i flies are handled now.
As far as the difference between TV's and computer screens/monitors (as far as my understanding here in the US), TV's have long been designed to handle interlaced images as broadcast television is interlaced (60i) but computer screens/monitors do not deal with interlaced video as LCD technology is progressive. So, a TV can accept both 60i and 60p (I guess I'm talking only of current flat screen technology as older CRT TV's were interlaced) video while computer screens/monitors only display 60p so if you are going to feed them 60i signals, there must be some processing involved.
I guess it wouldn't matter which video signal you had your video card setup to send to your TV as both interlaced and progressive signals would work. It would make sense though, that if you shot your video in 1080 50p, you would want to setup your video card to output 1080 50p to both preserve the highest resolution from your footage as well as eliminate any processing from 50i to 50p, or even 50p to 50i and back to 50p for your TV.
Of course, if anybody has a better understanding or I've erred in my explanation, please feel free to correct me.
