well, after having tried a number of deinterlacers I came to the conclusion
that the only one that works barely acceptably is a plain "field" 
(it's not a real dinterlacer: it simply discards one of the fields, but 
it halves
the vertical resolution). It sucks, but at least combing goes away.
If you use mplayer you can enable it with -vf field
