Unless of course you have high quality hardware deinterlacing already available and working with Kodi Krypton - and for that AMLogic S8xx / S9xx devices running LibreELEC Kodi Krypton or SPMC (Kodi Jarvis) in Android can do exactly that, both using Amcodec Hardware video decoding and deinterlacing.

It would be interesting to see if the 2017 FireTV Gen3 that has an AMLogic S905Z Chipset could run SPMC 16.7.2 (Kodi Jarvis) and possibly utilise Amcodec hardware video acceleration.
 This is informative. Thanks! I just read that the not-yet-released 2017 Fire TV Stick is purported to powered by the Amlogic S905 processor, so maybe even the new stick will have enough to do it. The 2016 model is just not up to handling it, I guess. I wish there were something that could be done to get the 2016's Mediatek 8127d Quad-Core ARM and Mali-450 MP4 GPU to do some basic hardware deinterlacing on 1080i Live TV content to help with the combing artifacts.
