No, AVCHD is not necessarily a “problem” (well, it is for SOME systems) but it is more highly compressed than HDV. Ironically, the Canon HV20 and HV30 that you recommend both provide the lesser compressed format, thus a higher quality acquisition resource. It all boils down to purpose and market. And, of course, the eye of the beholder.
