qv4l2 doesn't do fullscreen or deinterlace? Any other lagless options with pvr-150?

Anyway to make qv4l2 do fullscreen or deinterlace? I'm using a pvr-150 capture card and everything gives me noticeable input lag (vlc, mplayer, etc) when playing games (Dreamcast, PS2, etc). Qv4l2 is the only program that exhibits no lag with read capture method from raw capture (/dev/video32).

Unless there's no other capture software with lagless output from a pvr-150, I'm stuck with qv4l2 with ugly interlacing artifacts. Documentation is pretty much null with qv4l2 unfortunately...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

This is a long shot because I've never used the Pvr-150, and I've never used a capture card on Linux to play games. BUT, I did use a number of things on a specialised film-transfer machine that recorded a live recording stream of celluloid film....long story. Point is: guvcview gave us really good results. If you have not tried that one, maybe give it a go?

Try tvtime. Do you want to record to disk?
