I'm not sure, for a few people I believe it was causing their backends to
crash, and I've a feeling I saw something that said that that had been
fixed, possibly fixing the artifacts?

However, my Virgin STB has the same artifacts too on Channel 5 so I expect
it's unlikely that myth is going to be able to filter them out. I suppose
some means of turning off/forcing the progressive/interlaced detection for
certain recordings could be done but I'm not sure that'd be accepted by the
devs as a valid thing to do!
