Do you use the TV-Out or VGA? The quality should be better with VGA, but:
What resolution did you setup to get full-screen tv output in the right
aspect ratio?
What about deinterlacing? I now own a 100Hz LCD-TV (Sony KDL-32D3000),
but it looks like the tricks used in there won't work with PC input as
then you'll see the typical "kamm-effekt" (comb-effect ;-) !?) again. It
looks like the PC has to do the work then.
What about the various video formats? If we can't send the streams in
their native format we no longer can use all the aspect settings of the
TV, no? All the resizing will be done by xine now. Or is there a way
that xine changes the output format on the fly?
