Yes, the playback works fine now, in that test version which I too am now using.

I can only use movies that I transferred and used on the PS3 HDD before the 01.13.xx versions.
The first time we try to play an AVCHD after placing it on HDD multiMAN always adds an extra prompt about converting from Bluray format to AVCHD format, which I find odd when the same data placed on a DVD-R disc is recognized as already valid AVCHD format and plays perfectly from that disc. Even so, I assume that multiMAN wants to do this for a good reason, so I always answer that prompt with "Yes". (Refusal => refused playback anyway, as you must know.)
I have no idea about this "conversion..., which will fail in recent versions, leaving the video in unplayable state".
After that conversion we then get the usual prompt about activating the selected AVCHD folder, and when that has been confirmed with "Yes", we get another message saying "Activating AVCHD structure, please wait..." and this is where it freezes forever for an AVCHD movie transferred and converted by the new multiMAN versions.
This freezing is not just some normal locked loop effect, but is something more fatal, as it is not possible to exit from this state by pressing the PS button and use the 'Quit Game' command. That button has no effect at all here. It is necessary to use the on/standby button on the console itself to break out of this freeze by turning the console off (or to standby rather).
While the freezing occurs after the second prompt, when the AVCHD structure is to be prepared for the USB drive, I do not believe that this operation is the real cause of it, but rather that the cause is some error in the conversion operation done after the first prompt, which causes no crash in itself during that operation, but leaves some part of the video data in a state that causes the second operation to lock up. This belief is mainly based on the fact that videos converted earlier work fine in this 'second' operation (the only prompted operation when choosing an old video already converted).
For one thing I find that odd, since it is a part of multiMAN that writes the files even for an FTP transfer, and if it is entitled to create and write files it should also be entitled to rename them. But in any case the FTP complications are not relevant for me.
It is possible to have issues if the folder was transferred via FTP and something is wrong with the permissions, which blocks multiMAN from renaming the files.
I have transferred most movies to the PS3 HDD using the nethost device in the file manager, except for a few that I transferred via split4G copying to a USB drive on a PC, followed by copying from that USB drive to the PS3 HDD using multiMAN's file manager.
Both those methods have been used with older multiMAN versions, and those videos always worked.
Both those methods have also been used with 01.13.xx versions and newer, and those videos always fail as described.
I have not experienced any problems, but I'll test with another video.
Possibly your AVCHD files are originally different from mine, in some way causing the 'conversion' stage to be performed differently, or even skipped, which could hide the problem we see from your own tests. Perhaps you need to try it the way Multi-Man said that he does it, using full blueray movies. That should definitely trigger the conversion process, and he said that this then fails in the same way it does for me (though all movies I tested were already AVCHD).

same issue here, old AVCHD's already there works fine, new AVCHD's frees at converting, needs a hard reboot, + i'm sure the files are already AVCHD but they show up red and not playing
Yes, that's the same problem I and Multi-Man have reported on.

But I have a vague recollection of Dean saying something earlier about how some change was needed to make the movies run from HDD, via the 'fake' AVCHD structure on USB. Perhaps he is really patching some path references needed to make the movie play right.
If so, then the changes are most likely not made in the main stream file(s), but in some of the minor files in the AVCHD file/folder structure.
That would explain why this supposed 'conversion' of a huge video file can perform superfast like it does, if it only has to alter some text links, as opposed to modifying any real video data, which would have to be a much slower job.
With this in mind, I am now going to transfer those parts (everything except the main stream) back from the PS3 to my PC, for both one of the old and working videos, as well as for one of the new and failing ones, to see if I can find some obvious difference explaining why the latter don't work.
I'll be back later to report what I find out from that comparison (if anything...).

hey sexist! where is multiwomen?!?!?!
Dean, someone gave me said that with the Multiman also can play PS2 backups, it would be possible to get run for PS1 backups?
SOLVED use AVCHD Patcher and they work fine
checked the files, they look identical, the jar folders are empty, the stream shows its AVCHD-Video(new and old files), trying another movie now, be back later
tessting AVCHD-Patcher atm(patch index.bdmv)

Reason: testing AVCHD Patcher
