NEX-5, records video in MPEG-4 but not AVCHD!

Hello everyone, received my new NEX-5 yesterday (christened it by taking a night-time shot of the garden with snow in the moonlight).

I wanted to try the HD video recording as well, but... I keep on getting the message "Recording is unavailable in this movie format" when trying to record in AVCHD. If I switch to MPG, no problem. I have a Verbatim 16GB class 6 SDHC card (should be OK?), have even tried changing the shoot mode (P, iA, SCN, etc.) but none of this helps - I just can't get the blasted thing to record in AVCHD! I'd be grateful if someone could tell me what silly thing I may be doing wrong (I can't believe that the camera would have a fault that would allow MPEG-4 recording but not AVCHD...). Cheers!
