If i convert from MP4 to AVCHD is that going to increase the amount of MB's or decrease? Thanks
Am trying to download a youtube clip and then put it on a SD card, but my TV can only take MPEG2 or AVCHD

I don't know. If you keep the settings the same, they should be similar I think.

If you decide to upscale your youtube clips to 1080p, it will still look the same but in a much bigger filesize...

MP4 is a container format ie, contains video and sound and subtitles etc. Inside the container the video could be anything. Eg, DivX/Xvid or H264.

I found on my Bravia (using the USB input) that MP4 with H264 AVC video @ 2400 kbps, and AAC sound, is quite good. (1280 x 720 @ 29.970fps progressive)

My Bravia is quite picky about video formats on its USB input. (It plays just about all formats via wifi, but with poor quality).

On the USB it says it takes MPEG-2 but it turns out to be only an infinitesimal subset of the MPEG-2 options.

MPEG-2 with 1080i is the highest quality (better than MP4 above, and MUCH better than anything over wifi)
