ATSC recordings i think were fine.. I tried one at 1.4x and it was fine..
At one point i was using the de-int at all resolutions, but i changed it at
one point playing with stuff..  Now it's only on for 1080 material..   I
didn't notice any differnences, but it wasn't a very scietific experiment.

Personally for me 1.4x is the highest that i can watch something, and still
feel good about my self..  1.5x seemed to work the same at 1.4.

The biggest issue that i noticed was with the actual show.  Watching the
Tour of Romandie, i could do 1.4X and the video was watchable..  Trying to
watch Monaco GP was a bit painful with any acceleration (even 1.1X).  I'm
not quite sure why.  I notice in the logs that it's dropping frames, but i
don't know if thats normal.
