Here is a summary


For SDTV the "spatial temporal" deinterlacing is supported up from 6150 
and 6200 chips. A 6600 is need for HD. Despite of rumours in the nvidia 
forum nothing has happened to support Linux :^(

I have been able to activate in the past some kind of linear blend (loss 
of vertical resolution) and bob (some blinking) deinterlacers with xxmc. 
Since xine-lib CVS 1.1.3/4 and new Nvidia binary drivers I'm not able to 
activate deinterlacing any more.

This is a bit off-thread but I guess the pain in the *** interlaced 
video won't be killed in near future. Has anyone been able to output 
with xinelibout properly scaled video to 1080i over DVI/HDMI without 
need to de-interlace in PC but in the display device?

I need X.org and like to play games in the HTPC so fbdev is not an 
option for me.
