Doubling the frame rate so that even frames are displayed on one sync 
and odd frames the next *is* the correct playback method for interlaced 
video on a TV AFAIK.  Aside from deinterlacing it there's not much else 
you can do. I would think it'd now be possible to do given that you can 
now explicitly specify an interlaced video mode with the driver.
