Or any other supported resolution if you have a saa7134 card because the 
saa7134 chip has a not-so-bad deinterlacer.

That's not so important if you don't care about the bitrate. If in doubt 
add 10% to the bitrate if your output dimentions are not multiples of 16.

I think it is much more important to take care that the vertical crop 
offset is a multiple of four which is not the case in The Eye's mencoder 
command line.
