On a slightly different note, can anyone tell me exactly what the 
advantages of Bob de-interlacing are?  Yes, the picture here seems to be 
fairly clear and clear, though it has an incredibly annoying vertical 
jitter on anything with sharp edges (i.e. the OSD and titles/credits)

Which de-interlacing methods yeild the best results for people?  
Currently I'm using Kernel which does the job nicely on my 19" CRT 
monitor.   Bob did appear to be a bit sharper, but the jitter drove me 
nuts... :)
