NBC and CBS programs seem to be the most twitchy, and NBC programs have periodic bad frames with Bob2x. These bad frames happen in the same place each time I play back the recording, so it is something about the encoding that Bob2x doesn't handle.

If your TV can accept 1080i and your graphics card can produce it then
you could try the field order deinterlacer:
