Question HDTV & Ghosting

I have a Sony KF-60DX100 Grand WEGA with a RCA HD receiver (DT210). My HD channels have ghost. The MENU throws a ghost. Signal for all SATs above 90.

Anyone have any suggestions?

What do you mean "ghost"? Are you just saying that you're seeing an imprint of the guide on HD channels? Or do you have actual ghosting/interference? Sometimes with really long cable runs and bad cable (sometimes with analog channels on antenna) you can get a ghosting effect, where one channel is interfering with another. But I don't think this could be ghosting here. Need more info.

Ghosting occurs due to a weaker secondary signal arriving at the TV a small time later than the primary signal. Generally the use of DVI or HDMI cables will prevent this, if your TV and receiver is so equipped.

If you are using component cables to connect your receiver to the TV they could be the problem. I have noticed this in long runs of component cables, for example. An addition of a component amplifier eliminated the problem. If you have short cables, they may need to be replaced. Also if you use cable ties to bind long runs, they need to be placed on irregular intervals to prevent setting up a standing wave in the cable that can cause ghosting.
If it is not cabling, the receiver may be suspect, but I'd leave that as the last resort.

Thanks for the replies.

The Ghost is visable on HD channels. ie. NFL games. The players appear to have a shadow/ghost on one side of them.

I use short component connections.

I will try replacing the cables.
