The profile you've described doesn't require any complexity.
Deinterlacing will be turned off when playing 720p and 480p so you
just need a simple/single profile that uses bob as the deinterlacer.

Otherwise, mythtv will filter entries in a playback profile based on
the video size and then prioritise the remaining entries. If the
highest priority profile fails at playback time (e.g. xvmc not
available), it will try the next etc.
