The difference can be extremely hard to see depending on the source material, 
viewing distance and display size.

If the picture is first deinterlaced on the pc and then output (re)interlaced  
and the tv deinterlaces again I'd expect some massive quality loss from this 
pointlessness.

If the tv won't accept 1920x1080p60 then you're probably better off using the 
vdpau deinterlacer (--post tvtime:method=use_vo_driver) and 1280x720p60 mode.
