I am pretty sure tvtime (tvtime.sf.net) has done all the porting you
need. It takes a dscaler dll from windows and accesses it for all of the
dscaler tricks.

It has been proposed that mythtv could use tvtime for playback. But I am
pretty sure that is non-starter at this time. MythTV does include
several playback filters too, bob and kernel deint come to mind. It
largely depends on how picky you are about output.
