Yes, that is what i mean but I dont have the Panny. i do however have the WDTV and it has played pretty much everything ive thrown at itHi,
Sorry just to clarify what are you referring to when you say "why should it not?" Are you referring to WD Live Media player not working iwth the TM700 footage.
I suppose I could try . If you have a short clip you can send as an email attachment, let me know. if nobody can confirm their own personal experienceSo I want to get a media player which will play the videos.
Many Thanks for your help,

Hi - could you please send me your email address. I can send you a clip? DO you have WD Live or the WDTV player which rogs has?
No worries although not on an open web page and you dont have PM facilites yet due to recent changes
if you email me via the AVF facility I will reply with mine
Mine is not the Live version, It is he same as Rogs . I dont mind the Live version but Im perfectly happy not to stream via a network
I downloaded a coiuple of raw TM700 1080 50p files and tried them through my WDTV player (the original model, not the 'live' version).
Not good. Could be the fact that the 28Mbps VBR format is not within the existing AVCHD spec, or simply that the USB port can't handle the bit rate continuously?
Anyway - motion judder is bad, and it won't replay the audio after a few seconds.
On the computer (9550 Quad core) I get the best results using the Canopus ADVCHD2HQ preview. It looks OK, but I'm still not impressed with the motion. It's as if the complexity of the format makes the number crunching just too much, even though the CPU reports that it is, at worst, working at 70% on all 4 cores
Not impressed. Get much better motion 'smoothness' from my 1080i footage, automatically de-interlaced in the same preview program.
I'm going to try and convert the samples I've got into HQ, and re-encode into a lower bitrate x264 format. That should confirm whether the motion 'judder' is inherent in the original, or a function of the replay medium.
It could be that the WD 'live', which uses a newer chipset than the original model, can handle these high bit rate 'out of spec' modes better?
It works like a dream on my WDTV (V2) - like the live but with no networking. Be sure to set the output resolution to 1080p50 for that incredibly smooth motion
Thanks for your reply are you on V2 of WDTV.
I have a WDTV HD player as well (the original Mk1 not the LIVE version). Yes it plays the 60p footage from HDC-TM700 but with stuttering movement. It does 60i smoothly though. The LIVE version may work better but I have not tried that.
I've had bit of a 'wade' through the Sigma data sheets, to try and establish what significant differences there are betweeen them, and which applies to which WD player!
The original WDTV v.1 player - (the one that both Senu and I use) - has the 8635 chip. It is definitely slower than the later chips.
Both the v.2 of that original model, and the subsequent WDTV 'live,' use the faster 8655 chip.
The new WDTV 'live+' unit uses the 8654 chip, which seems to be identical to the 8655, except for the fact that the latter is non-Macrovision. Why that difference between the 'live' and the 'live+' I wouldn't know?
So unless that firmware is seriously different, I would expect that any file that plays OK on the WDTV v.2 is going to play on either of the 'live' players as well.
They really don't make this easy, do they?
