Well new to this forum and to camcorders. Perhaps some of you may help.
I recently bought and Sony XR 105 Hi def/HDD camcorder. Read the reviews about it - all looked good so went ahead with the purchase.
The camcorder itself is great, very pleased. My problems started when trying to view the content on my home cinema system.
I didn't realise that Sony (and Panasonic?) save the HD quality as AVCHD format and as such requires a Blue-Ray player or Sony ps3 to view on the tv. Now I can play the camcorders content on the TV in hi def with the HDMI, how ever an 80 gig hard drive won't last long. I tried using a memory stick plugged into the home cinema system - no luck. Same with disks.
Fair enough, so I thought, well could I try and store the AVCHD files on my pc to save the camcorders hard drive filling up then put them back on the camcorder to view on tv via HDMI? - at least then I have Hi Def files stored untill I buy a Blue ray player some point in the future. NO, sony wont let me store the files on the pc and then put them back on camcorder - at least I couldn't find a way to.....
Can anyone offer any advice, hints, tricks or solutions please????
I have run a search on here but not found anything.
Appologies for the long winded 1st post!
Thanks in advance for any help!
