Alas, no joy. The Chicago recording seems particularly bad. Some
recordings are not doing it at all (SNL for example) while others do it
to differing degrees. (Most of my 1080i are from NBC) No sign of it
on a cbs program though.
Even a year old NBC program has these constant disablings of deinterlace.
So it is something about how NBC is encoding the programs that is
confusing Myth. I don't think they would send actual 1080 line progressive
frames in the stream -- that would confuse most TVs.
