Which deinterlacer are you using? In the CVS version there are options now to 
choose which one you want now.
The bob deinterlacer is great. I was watching TV on myth so much I became 
sensitive to the low frame rate due to the deinterlacer. I couldn't watch it for 
too long. Now with the bob deinterlacer the motion is great (just like normal 
TV). I can enjoy MythTV again. :)
