Spend $40 and get a new Nvidia card with VDPAU support. It will, among
other things, give you the Advanced 2X deinterlacer which, consensus
says, is the single best way to upscale/smooth out standard-definition
video on a high-definition screen.

Frontend/backend:	P4 3.0GHz, 1.5TB software RAID 5 array
Backend:		Quad-core Xeon 1.6GHz, 6.6TB sw RAID 6
Video inputs:		Four high-definition over FireWire/OTA
Accessories:		47" 1080p LCD, 5.1 digital, and MX-600
