[MPlayer-users] I know what telecine and interlacing are, but ....

I'm capturing video from the HDMI output of my DVR onto my Linux
PC. I play the video with mplayer from PC->TV by connecting the
video card's HDMI output to the TV's HDMI input. When I do that, I
see combing effects on the TV from either interlacing or telecining.
However, if I play the video straight from the DVR->TV, then there's no
combing effects. But for PC->TV, I see combing effects. Why is this?
If I'm capturing the video off of the DVR HDMI output, everything is digital,
so when I play the captured video back to the TV from the PC, shouldn't it
look exactly the same as if I play the video from the DVR->TV?
The only answer I can think of is that maybe the TV de-interlaces, or inverse
telecines the video when it is played from DVR->TV. But it doesn't do so when
played from PC->TV. Is that possible? Or am I misunderstanding some
Anyway, is it possible to play the captured video with mplayer from the
PC-TV without any combing effects if I don't explicitly deinterlace or
inverse telecine the captured video?
