right. It also helps for deinterlaced output using a LCD/Plasma with
dvi/d-sub. 

But it should prove even more useful doing interlaced output
with scart on a LCD/Plasma or cathode ray tube based displays.

Though this is a quite challenging task. All components e.g. budget card
drivers, software decoder, display driver (e.g. Xserver) must play seamlessly
together.

One badly behaving component anywhere in the chain can ruin the overall 
effort.

This is a big difference to a FF card. Where almost all important
components are located within a self-contained board. Driven by proprietary
firmware:)
