Interlacing artefacts are only visible in resolutions above 320x240. You don't have to worry about those on the D2's screen since it's less than a quarter of DVD resolution - Meaning, every second line of the video has already been dropped.
This goes for interlaced DVD/TV source material at its native resolution only. If someone already made an improper deinterlaced or IVTC rip there's little one can do about the line/comb artefacts in a further conversion.
