PowerDVD Ultra - 26XX ATI Cards

Anyone play around with the Catalyst options like deinterlacing and 3:2 pull-down? Also, anyone notice the hardware de-interlacing options under PowerDVD are Weave No De-interlacing, Bob, and then a series of non-coherent numbers?

I notice PowerDVD will recommend to turn off Smart De-interlace with HD content, which I don't use anyway, but I'm wondering if Hardware De-interlacing on the card should be used. Vector Adaptive is supposed to fix up the source beyond regular de-interlacing. I know HD content is progressive so in theory it should not matter but I also know that the ATI Avivo on the 2600XT anyway will clean up HD sources if there are imperfections.

So I guess my question is does anyone know which de-interlacing options should be set on the card for both SD and HD.

I tried Media Player Classic Home Theatre with EVR enabled and SD content and Vector Adaptive de-interlacing enabled and it looked better to me. Not much about this on the forums though.

Mitsubishi HC1500 projector, 3 FibreOp 2.0 HDTV receivers, Draper 120 inch screen, HD Media PC i7 920, ATI 4800 Radeon.

With hi-def discs (nothing to deinterlace), these settings don't matter. At least I didn't see any difference.

Some HDM disks still have 1080i/60 source main feature material (especially concert BDs & HD DVDs) plus HD extras are often interlaced too (480i/60 or 1080i/60).

The funny thing is I didn't see any change with the different settings even with interlaced material (concerts).
