Yes I've seen that too. If a rate-doubling deinterlacer is rejected on
the basis of insufficient display framerate then it is properly rejected for
the playback of recordings. But for playback of live TV, the
deinterlacer still gets used in a way that makes playback unwatchably
jerky; my guess is that, although the deinterlacer is used, the
framerate isn't doubled.
