Offline Editing with Adobe Premiere CS6 - workflow ideas?

I have a large video editing project, consisting of MTS files. After some trial and error I found that I could convert the originals into low res MP4 clips, then batch rename the suffix to MTS and then happily edit using them.

Then when it came time to swap back to the originals I could change the name of the root folder containing the low-res files which would trigger Adobe Premier to start the relinking process for all the files. I would just need to relink the first file to the original folder and then everything else would happen automatically.

That was with with Adobe Premiere CS5. Now I have just upgraded to CS6.

Now when I attempt to link to the original I can get error message:

'The selected file cannot be linked because its type (video) does not match the original file's type (audio and video)'.

No it doesn't, but that was the point of editing on a lower res version. In fact that error is a little misleading because I can do a clip by clip 'replace footage'. Then it will happily replace the low res MP4 with the original MTS footage, but not the audio, see the following error message.

'The audio file does not contain audio media used by clip references in one or more sequences. These audio clip references will be deleted and cannot be undone. Do you want to continue?'

Any ideas for a way forward? Is CS6 so clever with its memory mgmt etc that offline editing is a thing of the past?

I should have mentioned that I'm using a Synology NAS (DS411j) to store the original files... could that be causing the problem?
