My first time online for almost 6 weeks, so I may be out of date here
and I definitely haven't had a chance to test the latest binary

That patch was one of my earlier attempts to fix interlacing sync. If
you can use the opengl video renderer, the 'Interlaced' deinterlacer
should give you a more consistent result. It seems to be display
dependant (i.e. tv brand/model - not gpu etc) but seems to cope etter
with minor playback glitches etc and with some hardware will stay in
sync 100% of the time.

Now that (I think) there is double rate software deinterlacer support
in trunk (as needed for the greedy/yadif deinterlacers), I intent to
write a cpu based version of the same filter in the near future which
should give a more accessible solution for all.
