In my experience and many others on the list the VDPAU deinterlacers
are the best quality you can get. I use the Advanced 2x with my SD
content and it is dramatically better. I think the 8400 can't do that
highest deinterlacers with 1080i. Check out the wiki article on VDPAU
and there are reports from individuals and their experience with
specific cards. It looks like the 8500 can do the Temporal 1x/2x but
not Advanced 2x (ie spatial-temporal deinterlacing). I think you will
find the VDPAU Temporal 1x/2x deinterlacers are preferable to linear
blend. It is certainly worth a try if you have the hardware. See what
it looks like.
