Sorry to jump in on this, but I wonder if people could suggest what the
settings should be in xineliboutput plugins options?
I have just upped my card from an 8400 to an N210 with 512MB ram in
order to get 1080i/60hz interlacing working. It's an improvement, but I
think I still have somewhere to go.
I am using a Eurospec TV although am trying to use it at 60hz (I moved
to the US from Italy) via a DVI to HDMI cable. I have two modelines,
which I switch by my remote using the xrandr command, 720p60 looks
better, but I think I should using 1080i
I have two ATSC card which show 720p60 and 1080i60 and a Hauppuage PVR
HD and the pvrinput plugin, this I use to show HD content from a cable
box. That I can select to either 1080i or 720p. Most of the content is
originally broadcast in 1080i.
I am using
ModeLine "1920x1080i60" 74.18 1920 2008 2052 2200 1080 1084 1094 1124
+HSync +VSync Interlace
Modeline "1280x720_60" 74.48 1280 1336 1472 1664 720 721 724 746
X won't display the correct resolution by default, as my edid is messed
up on my TV.
What deinterlacing options should I use on the plugin? Bob? TVTime
then scaler Bob? Judder correct etc etc?
Most SD stuff here is badly done 4:3, with stations like BBC America
adding black bars to the top and bottom, so I get a square in the middle
of the TV. Xineliboutput can zoom this quite well, but after a while
the whole picture judders until I kill vdr-sxfe and reload it.
Do I need FFMpeg to work alongside it or will that kill vdpau?
