Tweaking MythTV

I've discovered that if I use the following params:

mplayer -vf pp=lb -vfm ffmpeg -lavdopts lowres=1:fast:skiploopfilter=all
-framedrop dvb://KUED-HD	

then 1080i looks pretty good scaled down to my 720p television.  But I
can't get MythTV to play 1080 well at all.  Until I get my X2 htpc, do
any myth experts here know how to dumb down myth's player so hdtv is

I've tried changing the default player in the video settings but that
didn't seem to change recorded video or live tv.
