    Here is my setup , AV1 = Sky box, AV2 = Xbox, AV3 = VCR, AV4 = Computer via svideo.
    When I plug the RF cable into the television from the normal arial so that I can get local news broadcasts I can watch BBC 1,2 ,ITV Cannel 4 fine but if I switch over to watch sky I can see ghosting on the picture from the RF. unplug the RF and it goes away.
    Could someone help me to resolve this?
    Regards Greame:smoke:

    Have you tried taking your RF aerial lead from the wall into you Sky box, from Sky box into VCR, from VCR into TV RF socket. This I think is how SKY suggest wiring up the aerial. Then you can watch either SKY, or press TV on SKY remote and watch RF local TV. This might avoid crosstalk.

    Are you using decent quality, screened SCARTS for your connections?

    Hi

    These are makes to look out for: IXOS. Thor and Monster. Good quality, screened, SCART lead can reduce crossstalk and signal leakage from other leads, and gold-plated connectors can make a tremendous difference to picture quality too.

    At the top of this forum page, click on "Search", type SCART leads into the search box, and you'll find numerous threads with reviews and recommendations on which SCART leads are good.

    It might be worth unplugging everything, then re-plugging one lead at a time to see if the problem suddenly appears with a particular configuration.

    Could this be a problem caused by the AV3 output? Anyone else have any suggestions?
