Yeah, ION isn't quite fast enough to do full Advanced 2X deinterlacing
with smooth playback.

But the newer ION2 is fast enough for that.

Going with a larger system, with a full PCIe video card,
allows enabling more VDPAU features though.

I've got both kinds of systems here, both play 1080 content
(various flavours) equally well.

My BIG system (GT240) does choke on the only VC-1 BlueRay content
I have for it though.  Haven't tried that clip on the Ion2 yet.
