Geting the best digital TV quality (1 Viewer)

My liveTV picture quality isn't quite where I want it. I have been playing around with various codecs.

Currently I am using the codec from Power DVD 9, and using ffdshow for upscaling to 1080i. This seems to be the best setup I can come up with, but I still experience motion blur - e.g. when watching football.

ffdshow is used for post processing in Mediaportal only. I have otherwise tried to disable the codec completely.

I have look quite a bit at other threads with similar problems, but no one seems to have found a perfect solution :confused:
