Default Is there something I'm missing with video conversion?

So I've tried converting various videos, from episodes of Family Guy to The Fifth Element. No offense to elviselvis but even at the highest quality I find iLove to be a bit lacking in the clarity department compared to JetAudio conversion. Sure it takes up more memory but I have some to spare!

The thing that really bothers me though is the fact that when I convert the videos and watch them at normal size on my laptop or desktop they look fine and relatively digital artifact-free. On the D2, however, you get various areas of artifacts. Some are excusable, such as the lack of detail in dark areas compared to light areas, which is a deficiency in the mpeg codecs.

The one that I despise, though, is that fact that base colors (red, green and blue) and colors primarily consisting of one of these three, such as hot pink, appear rather blocky. Is there a way to fix this? I'd hate for my friends to call me Mr. Blocky McBlockerson!

I've heard something about a deinterlacer improving the quality of video on the D2. Again this artifacting doesn't show up on either of my pc's during playback.
