Unfortunately, there are some issues (shuffled frames, for example) with specific AVHCD flavors/models.
As a workaround for now, you can convert these files to something else before importing into AE. You can do this with Premiere Pro, or use a free conversion utility like Handbrake, for example.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Other tools you could use: SUPER©, ffmpeg and MPEGStreamclip. If you can provide a short snippet of your footage (about 5 secs, 30 MB), we can investigate further and may be able to offer some more specific advise. Sometimes such issues do not occur on all systems and in addition, having as many specimen as possible will also help the engineers to straighten this out for CS5 or any possible updates.
Thanks for the tips guys...I think I have it working (after a million attempts). I changed the bith depth of the project to 32bpc and that seemed to work. Does anyone know if that is a requirement for working with AVCHD?

Not at all. It was a lucky coincidence
