TVs de-interlace would matter with interlaced output but I suppose
field/frame accurate scaled and original way interlaced e.g. 1080i
output is not possible with Nvidia and X.org. I'm using progressive
1080p50 output for 576i50 DVB-T/S video. Libxine handles de-interlacing,
and Xv driver in Xorg the scaling with graphics hardware. The magic
spell from xinelibout config is
The result is IMHO pretty good with a 50 Hz X.org mode where
syncronization to vertical refresh is usually close to perfect.
De-interlacing consumes more CPU than 576i MPEG-2 video decoding.
Advertised techniques for frame rate interpolation to 100/120 Hz perhaps
matter more for typical Blu-Ray low rate 24p videos than 50/60p
progressive video from PC. I haven't seen those in action so I'm only
