The bad and ugly parts are unfortunate, but as you suggest I'm not
convinced they have anything to do with this card directly. Have you
tried to see what deinterlacers you can get with 1080i content
(although the wiki says no for Advanced 2x, I thought I recall reading
something suggesting it MIGHT be possible with the card).

Anyway, I've been holding off on buying this card for a few weeks now
(I like the low power consumption and fanless design). Maybe it's time
I go ahead and place the order.
