    Help again please !

    My SD5 is working fine now, and i am racking up many many .mts files.
    Now i need to play them back on my HDTV. Unfortunately, saving the stream footage files back unedited to the memory card does not allow me to play them (they are not even recognised). My computer is not powerful enough to play the files so i am looking for a cheap effective solution.
    Someone mentioned popcornhour players which seem amazingly cheap (alas unavailable?) but i am open to all sensible suggestions of how to play .mts files on my HDTV.

    Help please.....

    Popcornhour would have been my suggestions, one on ebay (although obviously price is gonna be inflated).

    Other alternative is tvix 6500 which is due to start shipping next week.

    Would i need a powerful PC to stream to popcornhour ? (and how powerful).

    What would the minimum spec be to play HD files on a computer then play onto an HDTV via dvi-hdmi cable ? It might be cheaper to upgrade my computer?

    What about an external plug in ble ray player - is there a minimum computer spec needed ?

    What is better, other than game playing ability, with a PS3 than a normal blue ray player ?

    Am being tipped towards a PS3..................

    Thank you
