i think you'll find they don't deinterlace.

They receive an interlaced signal and they pass that on to the TV.
They will have a dedicated video chip designed for the job, and not a
general purpose PC graphics card.

Apparently the Matrox G400 had a decent TV encoder chip and could send
a proper interlaced signal to a TV.
