Windows 7: Digital TV and Disk Use (and De-interlacing)

Digital TV and Disk Use (and De-interlacing)

It seems like WMC wants some disk space (6GB) just so that I can _watch_ digital TV, even if I'm not recording anything.

Looks like that disk space is used for recording the program I'm watching, so that I can rewind it if I want.
But I don't want that, I'd like to just watch the digital TV and not use the HDD at all, I don't care about rewinding.

Is there a way to turn that feature off? I couldn't find it.

Is there a deinterlacing option somewhere? I get those ugly lines with some channels/content.

I should mention that it's now giving me a "disk full" error after watching for a while, since I don't have a lot of space on C: and I need to restart WMC to watch again.

(I selected D: for recording, but it's actually using C: for that "automatic recording" while I'm watching.)

Just give me the option to disable that real-time recording, for Christ's sake.
I hate to complain in general, but sometimes Microsoft software lacks the most basic common sense.

Interlacing problem with Sony Vegas Movie Studio 11.0
My HD videos, produced in Sony VMS 11.0, are really badly interlaced. I've tried setting the deinterlace to blend and interpolate, but it makes not a jot of difference. I've tried various player software, and the only player which plays back without the horrible interlacing is Windows Media...
