    I am using a PC for playing back 50Hz Interlaced SD MPEG2 files (PAL)
    The graphics adaptor is a Intel 82945G
    One output goes to a VGA PC monitor for control
    The TV output goes over RGB to a TV in 50Hz Interlaced PAL format
    The deinterlacer in the TV is much better then anything I have seen running on my PC (motion compensated deinterlacing) and I would like to eliminate all deinterlacing in the PC so I can have a TV output frame locked with the video decoder displaying the fields in the right order so the TV deinterlacer can do its magic.

    However. I can not get it to work.
    I know that when using a dedicated HW media player I can get much better video playback then anything I can get from the PC TV Output. Sharpness and color are OK from the PC but motion portrail is terrible

    I have the following MPEG 2 video decoders installed
    MPV decoder filer
    Cyberlink Video/SP Decoder
    Sonic MPEG Video Decoder
    PP MPEG video decoder
    Cyberlink Video MPEG Decoder
    NVIDIA DualTV Transcoder

    Questions:

    Any recommendation on the decoder I should focus on?
    Should I use any specific deinterlacer setting in the decoder (disabled?)?
    How to ensure the MPEG decoder and the field displaying are locked?
    Any way to quickly test and compare the decoders?

    Any help is welcome

    Try to use VLC with "x" or "mean" deinterlace, and see how that looks, before deciding your television is better.

    VLC will also output interlaced video as-is.

    I think you're just using the wrong output player.

    Another factor is the output card, which may or may not actually support interlaced output.

    Indeed VLC could very much be better but I would like to use the decoder as a direct show filter so it can be used from the PVR software I use (GBPVR)
