          Don't worry so much about a specific MPEG2 SD editing preset--what's more important is the actual parameters.


          The simple way to make sure you're matching your footage to a sequence is to drag a clip to the New Item button at the bottom of the Project Panel--that's the one that looks like a dog-earred sheet of paper. This will create a sequence that matches your footage. Next, make sure that your Paused and Playback Resolution are set to Full; right-click in the Program Monitor to set these. Since you're working with an interlaced format, you may want to experiment with the field order display options in the Program Monitor, as well.


          Try those, and report back--bottom line is that what you're seeing is in Premiere Pro's display only, and shouldn't be carried through on export (assuming your sequence is properly set up).
