MeGUI + Source Type Detection Help

I have a DVD that MeGUI's "Analyze..." button can't find the "Source Type" for in the "MeGUI AVS Script Generate" page. Source is a cartoon. I wanted to try and find it myself so I followed the instructions in this post: Manually Find Source Type

Paraphrase: I used the following AVS Script in MeGUI and hit "Preview AVS Script". Got BFF from DGIndex "parseD2V".

---AviSynth Script---

Step Frame by Frame (at a Scean where something is constantly moving across the screen) and I notice the following pattern for most of my episodes: AAAAABBBCCCCCDDDEEEEEFFFGGGGGHHHIIIII

Note: I also tried DGIndex to see "Frame Type" (the DVD has different episodes on it). DGIndex always says "Interlaced" for some eps, "Progressive" for some eps, and for some it switches between "Interlace" and "Progressive" constantly while playing.

My Question: What MeGUI Source Type does the top corrospond too, and, if possible, what type of pattern would I see for each of the MeGUI Source Types?

---MeGUI Soruce Types---
1. Progressive
2. Interlaced
3. Film
4. M-in-5 decimation required
5. Hybrid film/interlaced. Mostly film
6. Hybrid film/interlaced. Mostly interlaced
7. Partially interlaced
8. Parially film

---Neurons Post Has the Following Already---
aabbcc (progressive)
abcdef (pure interlaced)
aaabbcccdd (hard 3:2 pulled-down progressive)

Thanks, NB

PS: I do notice my episode is close to the "hard 3:2 pulled-down progressive", would mine actually be "hard 5:3 pulled-down progressive"? Also what MeGUI source type is the "3:2" corrospond too?
