I was hoping someone could help me with this issue. I was planning to get a PS3 for the singular use of being able to play avchd files off of dvd-r discs. How do I take an avchd EDITED movie off Final Cut Express 4 and burn it to a dvd-r so that i can watch it through the ps3 in full hd? I look forward to any responses thanks!

Well, before you go headlong into editing AVCHD footage to burn to a DVD, keep one thing in mind: if you *do* burn the full 1080i (which is what AVCHD is) to a *standard* DVD, you'll only get about 19 to 22 minutes of footage on each DVD. On the other hand, if you buy an external Blu-Ray burner (LG makes a good one that runs between $300 and $350) and Toast 9 Titanium ($99; $20 additional for the Blu-Ray plug in) then you'll be fine to edit your AVCHD footage, then burn to Blu-Ray and not have to worry about the space limitations of a standard DVD.
