From what I know about MPlayer, isn't it possible to tell it to use
a certain decoder? Or couldn't you remux it and change the FOURCC to
"avc1"? I'm pretty sure that MEncoder has the ability to losslessly
remux (though I don't think MPEG-TS is a supported output container)
files, and should allow the forced changing of a FOURCC.

If you can get a codec that supports interlaced H.264, then sure.
You'd lose some quality in the transfer, but if you set your bitrate
high enough, you shouldn't notice. The biggest problem should be
getting that codec, which doesn't seem to be as easy as you make it
out to be.
