Thanks for the tip.   After a little bit of experimentation, I made that
change on my own.  I was originally thinking that the deinterlacer in
the STB would be better than deinterlacing on playback.   i.e., it could
all be done in the digital domain, so would be less lossy.

But right now I've got it set to 480i and 1080i and it looks good.
Advanced 2x vdpau for SD and Temporal 2x vdpau for HD are handled by the
ION system just fine.
