Hey Mark...I was curious as to whether or not you made any progress
with this. I have a 1080i RP CRT display and have been testing Paul
Gardiner's patch that adds a field-order deinterlacer in my 0.21-fixes
So far it appears to be perfect for my situation. The only problem is
that these types of stations cause problems with that deinterlacer
unless I manually set the display to interlaced.
I actually don't use the internal player for DVDs...I was thinking
that might make a simple hack for my own purposes quite a bit easier.
Thanks in advance.
