Were you using MythTranscode?  I have found that it creates really
exaggerated combing when downconvderting 1080i to 480i (I figure it is
trying to do some sort of poor quality de-interlacing unnecessarily,
although the combing seems too bad to be just that).  Is that what you are
seeing?  It also won't centre cut the video from 16:9 to 4:3.  I plan on
using the script that Kris B mentioned as it promises to be much better.
