    Looks to me that the TV is faulty, I have the same TV as you yet experience no such problems, my DVD is EXT 1 and Sky EXT2 but i never get any ghosting or interference from either source, apart from saying you should have got a Tosh, problems can appear on ANY make or model of TV, the 6305 is no exception. The only gripe i have with it is the lack of autoswitching, having to to it manually becomes a chore, but i can live with that.

    <br />Forgot. You say DVD is in EXT 2 so you will be using composite or SVIDEO correct? Try swapping the Scarts around and see if this cures it. It seems that the Svideo is getting preference to the RGB signal.

    andyw are you also not expieriencing the audio fault. This is the second unit i've had. with itvd switched off there is no double image. with dvd set to ntsc there is no double image. swoping inputs the same problem exists on ext 2. with my dvd powered down (connected ext 2). i can hear <br />ext 1 audio bleeding through. i have used another dvd on ext2 same prob. v.frustrated. AV inputs are supposed to be isolated until there switched.

    No Steve I am not having audio problems, could be because i have Sky and not ITV digital although i will try and replicate your problem, I could have missed something or my configuration wouldn't show it up, I'll get back to you about it m8

    Are you using individually shielded scart cables? If not try them, and/or disconnect pin 20 on your DVD scart lead (ground), this can also eliviate the problem with ghosting.

    <br />So, go for high quality scart cables<br />If this fails, try disconnecting pin 20 in your scart

    I've still got to try and replicate your faults Steve

    hi Steve, you do seem to be unlucky don't you <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> <br />I have tried to replicate your faults but couldn't. Titanic played faultlessly all the way through. It does seem very unlikely that you would suffer from the same problem twice over, but i would say that you either a) Had 2 early versions of this TV which had problems or b) Your setup just doesn't like the Philips. Did you try the pin 20 test, apart from this it looks like another make of TV for you, sorry I couldn't help more

    I get the ghosting problems wallclock talks about.
    If im watching DVD (ext1) or Sky (ext2) I can see the "outlines" of another picture moving across the screen in the background. This is more noticeable on areas of the same colour, and it turns out to be the picture on whatever analogue terrestrial channel the tv was in before switching to ext1 or 2, unplugging the areal lead gets rid of it.

    I will try the PIN 20 trick when I get time, might have to wait till I get back from holiday.

    Just to let you know, I've tried disconnecting pin20 like andyw said, but it made no difference to the picture. I'm gonna get hold of some better quality scart leads and see how that helps, thanx for the ideas anyway!
