Funny, I've been mucking around with the same hardware you speak of (Asus
AFAIK, the thing with tv-out is that you normaly output your captured
interlaced lines on the same lines on your tv-out, so it won't show on your
TV (because it's basicly the same stream). The Asus Pundit though can't do
overscan far enough to get this result, so you need to deinterlace.
At least I think that is the case in the USA, NTSC has 480 scanlines, so
setting your tv-out res to ???x480 would work there.
About the filters, in MythTV 0.13 my backend and/or frontend crashes when I
try to set a channel specific filter. I guess this is known behaviour and
fixed in the upcomming v0.14?
btw, Pundit question: what resolution do you use for tv-out and for
capturing? Mine has a Celeron 2.4GHz, but the maximum 720x576 PAL capture
res. is a bit too much. I now capture at 640x480 which works quite well. I
just got the highest res. S-Video-out working, but I think I might go back
to 640x480. I've set 'kerneldeint' in the playback settings, but I'd like
to have that applied before encoding it to MPEG4.
