that's exactly what I wanted to say. Of course our solution can't be
better than RGB-SCART itself.
But until now almost all VGA-based softdecoder solutions had to
deinterlace in software.
What makes not much sense if right after this the VGA CRT controller
re-interlaces the frame again. By doing so considerable CPU power is
wasted for getting even worse picture quality.
As mentioned above here are some further explanations:
With my patch we can grab the untouched fields right after the software
decoder and route them straight through to the VGA port.
