It is excellent, but I can't help thinking it's come a bit too late.
CRTs and SCART are being replaced by LCD and HDMI, and given an
interlaced picture, an LCD has to deinterlace it rather than take
advantage of phosphor decay. In theory a decoder such as VDPAU can
deinterlace better than the TV because it has access to extra info such
as motion vectors in the MPEG.
