I accept that they prefer "always" deinterlacing because they didn't
implement proper field parity in their architecture / api /
implementation. But I still think they screwed up. The matrox mga
450/550 cards do field parity pretty well, with a simple api, and in
98% of cases with predictable results and with manageable clock drift
workarounds. Too bad they offer no mpeg2 or h.264 acceleration.
