Actually, sync is only half the problem. The main issue is that the
interlaced video source lines can't be matched up to the correct
interlaced output lines when you're using TV-out.
If you search the archives there was a great post from Cory Papenfuss
about a year ago that explained it perfectly.
In the meantime, the only real way to fix it is to de-interlace if
you're using TV-out. I'm using an nvidia 6xxx with the component out,
opengl vsync and bob de-int and the picture is damn near perfect.
