My understanding about the CrystalHD cards is that they do offer some
deinterlacing method (though I'm fairly certain we are not yet using it),
but on the upside, you can use any software or OpenGL deinterlacer you like
with the return since you can use any renderer you like-- so if you liked,
you could do CrystalHD decode, OpenGL display and deinterlace, or CHD
decode, VDPAU render and deinterlace, etc. I am not sure that anything will
be gained or lost deinterlace-wise with the CrystalHD board, though-- I
think that deinterlace is largely a matter of taste so you'll have to see if
you like it.
