      Ghost

      Hello i am new to this forum.
      My problem is i have sky +. this last 3 or 4 months i have noticed ghost writing in the back ground, i have tried plugging a different TV into the box and it still happens.
      I hace a pace box, i have just phoned sky up and they said that they can send a someone out but it will cost me 65, and if he finds the box is faulty he will replace it with a recondition one.
      My biggest fear is that he tries to fit an amstrad box in, this i dont want i want a pace box like i have now. what will my rights be on this, does anyone know.
      OUR BETTER STILL DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO GET RID OF THIS GHOST WRITING. Thanks J.

      Ghosting is often caused by interference from the RF channel. Presumably you have either your TV connected with both a scart and an aerial lead or have a video recorder connected to the aerial which is then connected to the TV?

      To test if this is the cause, unplug your aerial lead from the wall. If the ghosting disappears then you've found the problem.

      If this is it then you need to change the RF channels in anything you have your aerial cable connected to.

      If it isn't then you might have a different problem which will need you to make some alterations to your scart cable.

      Hi

      I'm a new user, with the same 'Ghost writing' problem as detailed by the original poster - can I ask how or if the problem was resolved?

      Thanks

      @Owenport, Welcome to SkyUser.co.uk, Ghosting is caused by, SEE : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghosting_%28television%29

      You may face ghosting if you are connected to your box via a RF cable?

      Also caused by damaged cabling from the dish.
