While from the listed Windows 7 Media Center supported file types, we can find AVCHD files including Dolby Digital with .m2ts, .m2t as file extensions. However, it is also mentioned that some Media Center extender devices may not support AVCHD files or Apple QuickTime files. Xbox 360 must be one of the media center extenders that are not compatible with AVCHD files yet.
I have some AVCHD files from Panasonic SD707 camcorder, and some are the backup files from blu-ray discs. I want to locate the files to home NAS Netgear, play with media PC and/or media extenders. However, the AVCHD videos does not play via media center.
