No. VDPAU de-interlacing is done on the GPU. If you're working with videos
you intend to transcode anyway though, I'd do the de-interlacing at that
stage and not have to worry about it on the playback side, personally.  Of
course, for playing back recordings from 1080i stations, you end up having
to do it while playing back. Note the wiki entry about bumping up CPU speed
while using the de-interlacing. It helped my setup on a 8300 based
motherboard. I'm not sure it applies to an ION, but if you have problems you
might want to try it.
