} Shouldn't that be a kernel thing, and therefore already be there?

its more of an OS thing, but they are associated with the card so the OS
wouldnt already have them. a google search for mythbuntu and the card should
come up with info on how/where to get and put the files.

} Where do I find the interlacer?  And what should I try setting it to?

in mythfrontend setup /setup / tv setup/ playback plus a few screens in.
as for what that is personal taste and hardware capability related.
kernel and linear are the 2 basic ones that work but may not always
look good. though there are other settings on the same screen +/-
that affect playback.
