I haven't tried connecting the camera to hdtv to test the playback via hdmi.
I tested 720 @ 60 and the converted video has no hiccups. Looks like we are forced to buy a LDC bacpac for on demand viewing.

*Correction: Record your video of your trip in 1280x720 @ 60fps and you will be fine. Forget about anything higher quality, the camera can't keep up with itself.
Get a micro HDMI cable and plug it into your TV. You'll see the true quality of the video The GoPro obviously can keep up with it, since it takes much more power to encode than play back. It's the computers they're being played on that can't. Technology continues to advance. Remember, no other consumer camera record over about 15mbps, and this one records at 45mbps. If you can upgrade cameras, you can surely upgrade a cmputer's video card.
