To Ditch999,
From what I gathered reading the page you suggested it is possible to playback AVCHD on Sony's BDP-S300 as in fact the relative manual confirms. But I want to be absolutely sure it does that bebore I buy it.

As with all video formats there are different ratios and bitrates for AVCHD files. They can be between 64-640kbs for audio and up to 24Mbit/s for Bluray discs or up to 18Mbit/s for the file on an ordinary DVD. It was the same when DVD was introduced. It is a matter of setting the bitrate to match the player and the file should play OK.
If you know anyone with a PS3 you could ask them to try it for you.
