Good to hear.

I guess it's more accurate to say that Bob is the best deinterlacer I
can use (since I don't have the CPU power for Greedy or Yadif on HD)
but, yes, I have been quite happy with it. I know that Bob is
essentially line doubling, and can see the resulting "shimmering" if I
look closely at the OSD, or certain cartoons (before I switched to
Yadif for non-SD recordings). But the smoothness of HD video pans with
Bob and my 59.94Hz 1080p modeline just can't be matched by linear
blend, one field, or my flat panel's deinterlacer. I am very much
curious as to just how much better VDPAU's deinterlacing methods will

I suppose that's what I'll end up doing. I do feel silly about now
having bought my *fourth* Nvidia card (6200, 5300, 7300, and now 8400)
for the same frontend without any of them actually needing to be
Frontend: P4 3.0GHz, 1.5TB software RAID 5 array
Backend: Quad-core Xeon 1.6GHz, 6.6TB sw RAID 6
Video inputs: Four high-definition over FireWire/OTA
Accessories: 47" 1080p LCD, 5.1 digital, and MX-600
