interlaced video: unpredictable quality

when I launch an interlaced (50i) DXV3 clip, playback quality is unpredictable and seems completely random: sometimes it plays smoothly as expected from 50i video (i.e. smooth and fluid on external TV set) while sometimes it looks like its ignoring the interlaced mode (e.g. crawling text is very rou...
