DVD recorders can only produce interlaced files if the input
was interlaced, in this specific case, a file with progressive
content was produced (from progressive original).

(Above of course only applies to the content of the file,
not the encoding. But when talking about de-interlacing
and the idet filter, only the content is relevant.)
