I plan to hook the cat 5e ethernet cable from the router to a switch and then the Media Player, Xbox 360 and PS3 can all be hooked to the computer.
Here are some ways to play AVCHD 2.0 camcorder files that are 1080p60. I have not tested them myself.
Popcorn Hour A-110 has settings for 1080p60 and 1080p59.94. See the post at the link nexthttp://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...1#post21686231
Realtek 1186 based boxes. The first link is a list I complied of all the players that use this chip. The second link is where a person offered test files. This was later followed by several occasions where 1080p60 was tested ok using a HiMedia 900B player, which is based on the 1186 chip. There 1186 based players promise a lot, including full HD 3D playback, but they may not be the best all around player yet, since there are issues still being ironed out with playing 1080p23.976fps content some on some TVs.http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1384106http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...7#post21239267
The last method is if it were Sony camcorder 1080p60 files (I know it is not in this case), you could use Sony PMB and burn AVCHD 2.0 to a BD-R and play this on any of the following 3 Sony model bluray players. There is a chance these may also play this from a USB connected hard drive. Sony models BDPS-480, BDPS-580, BDPS-780.
I do not know if this last Sony PMB method works with 1080p60 files from a Panasonic camcorder. I know that you'd have to have a Sony camcorder just to install PMB. I mention this method because those with Sony camcorder would also read this thread. Do you know of an equal to the the Sony PMB software that burns AVCHD 2.0 disks, and also perhaps a Panasonic bluray player that plays them?
