I recently got this working. It's a bit tricky. I don't know what has
changed, because I've only tried to get bob working since using trunk.
It's worth running your frontend with verbose playback logging (e.g.
mythfrontend -v playback). This should give you information about why
bob deinterlacing isn't working.
You might want to look at the recent thread: "Bob deinterlacing drops
frames, but not high CPU". A couple of friendly people explained what
I was missing and how to get it working. It ended up being due to not
having my refresh rate high enough.
