PC friendly HD from FCP

Hi Guys, For a few years now my workflow has been the same. I start with HDV or XDCAM footage edit and deliver an SD DVD and a full res. MOV file on a flash drive. Were shooting in a few days and we have to deliver an HD video to be played on a PC. This is a first for me. All I use is FCP. I've tried Exporting with Quicktime conversion to make an AVI and it looks OK played back on the Mac but when I check it on the PC it's completely unusable. I've tried adjusting the bitrate and changing the codec. Can anybody tell me how to get HD that will look great on the PC?
