If you can live without Bob deint (i.e. you don't mind the deint 
artifacts or you run an
interlaced modeline) then it works perfectly for me in SD and HD.

However, if you enable Bob then all bets are off. I get all kinds of 
problems with Bob

I currently run XvMC for SD and HD on a progressive scan LCD TV and I'm very
happy with it. I'd prefer to have Bob work correctly, but I can live 
with the artifacts
in trade for the reduced CPU utilization. My 2.93ghz Celeron D won't 
play back
1080i without XvMC anyway.
