I have not seen those kinds issues with eHD card. But I use on my setup
separate
video processor (DVDO VP30 with abt102) for deinterlacing and scaling to
1080P.

I can get jagged lines when I use eHD own deinterlacer, it seems to miss
even/odd
field detection sometimes. Also TV:s own deinterlacer seems to lost half of
resolution when video is 576i when comparing to DVDO.

Are you absolutely sure that signal is 576i on HDMI? What TV tells about
video? It can be that also Mitsubishi sends 576P signal. True 576i/486i
support is rare on HDMI devices, specification recommend always to use at
least 576P, sd resolutions are possible but not recommended.. This is same
also on my own tv, it do not support officially 576i. But with suitable
devices I can feed 576i HDMI to it and it works. Normal BD player and eHD
refuses to send 576i to it and end result is 576P even that source is in
576i mode by ui.
