Andrew - I have seen this too, and have tried those options (both in the config file, and through the VDR OSD menus) with some good results. However, I have never really been clear on this - I am displaying to a 1080p as well, and some of my TV channels are p, some are i. Obviously only the i exhibits the combing effect on a p screen. So if you set the deinterlacing options on, wouldn't it also try to deinterlace the p channels? If so, wouldn't this reduce/corrupt the quality of those channels? Is there any way of making it selective on channel, or does it auto detect whether the deinterlacing is required?
If it is just on or off, irrespective of channel format - would a feature enhancement of being able to configure per-channel the setting be possible? Or is VDR just configured for one or the other at start up and cannot change?
I'm currious - in the UK are all channels p? Or do you see this issue as well? Do you just turn on deinterlace and deal with the effect on p channels?
Sorry for all the questions!
