There were many questions a few months ago about how DiVentix did de-interlacing, but not many answers. Sounds like the VP50 simply does it better, which is not too surprising as it's the state of the art. The better Crystalio, Lumagen, Optoma or Vantage processors would probably do a good job too. An expensive hardware blender can't keep up with those sorts of developments.
That's why I think switching/de-interlacing/scaling/noise reduction/picture control etc should be kept in the VP, and splitting and blending just left to the blender.
If the DiVentix is just bobbing or scaling 1080i video (like the VP30 for example) then it may not give you a better picture than say, a VP50 driving a stacked pair.
