Yes, Windows does this fine for me as well.

Please do!!!  What all people are getting with 6629, is an offset between the 
2 interlaced frames by 10 pixels or so. Like a vertical shadow.

I am running VGA 1920x1080p to my projector instead, but I'm pretty sure the 
Faroudja FLI2300 deinterlaces better than the HTPC.

Let's continue by mail, this must not interest many people here ..
