Seeing as the nVidia interlace problem is associated with XV, is there
any chance it will be fixed by use of VDPAU? I'd just love to buy
a mobo with integrated 8XXX graphics, and for now just drive my SD
TV via VGA=>Scart, knowing that I have HD capable hardware for when
I eventually need it.

In any case, it's hell these days to find a graphics card that can
generate PAL timings flawlessly, so an 8XXX card would be a great
solution, even ignoring the HD readiness.
