Just a wild guess, but if I remember correctly, the decklink device 
advertises both progressive and interlaced 1080 formats. You can check 
this with -list_formats. If the progressive one is the first, then I think 
the decklink device in ffmpeg will use that, no matter what you do. If 
that is really the case, then this has to be fixed in ffmpeg/libavdevice.
