I have the exact same issues you're having with playing 1080i at 1080i
(10 seconds good/10 seconds bad), except that my "blurriness" is more
choppy, almost like the fields are playing out of order.  However, if
I do bob deinterlacing everything looks fine... until I
pause/ff/otherwise disrupt the stream.  Then I'll get very jumpy video
like you described earlier, and nothing I do will get it back to
looking good.

I'm relatively new to Myth, but this has been an issue ever since I
started.  No combination of Myth settings or nvidia-settings seems to
fix the problem.  I couldn't get the 8xxx series drivers to work,
either, because of the total system hang playing video.  Ahh well -
back to 720p. :)

Athlon X2 4200

Good Luck,
