    isnt the interlace options a part of the codec?

    i use nvidia codec & mce2005
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/dvd_decoder.html

    within mce's interface there is a control panel for the nvidia codec, and it has options for intelace/deinterlace

    it doesn't work on vista x64 ;) - i tried it, yes it works great under MCE2005 but no under vista :(

    edit: seems to be doing it more so on American films, stuttering and such

    I am using TMT (Arcsoft total media theatre) and I really like it. Builds itself right in to MCE, and plays back Blu-ray and HD DVD too :) There is even a Nvidia cuda up-scaler plug-in which works really well in my opinion.

    you won't go wrong with a mini :)

    keep eyeing them myself so that I can get myself in to more support roles.

    Anyway back on topic, :p
    3Dfiend have you tried using FFdshow? you should be able to configure that to deinterlace the dvds all within MCE, I will try and find you a link when I get home tonight.

    seems to be fine under win7 so must be an issue with the built in mpeg2 codec in vista :(
