Anyone seeing "ghosts" on the Giants vs 49er broadcast on FOX? I've got ghosting and double images. Wondering if FOX is having a problem. No other channels are doing this on my cable system. Anybody? Go Raiders!

it looked worse than shit. it was some kind of EE / ringing that made it nearly unwatchable at times - esp when they panned across the crowd

I only saw the last 2 quarters, but didn't see any ghosting or ringing here. Cool ending too.

Glad to see it wasn't just me. I noticed the blurriness only on the long range shots. I've noticed it in another Fox game recently too. I think that one was also at Candlestick. I wonder if the camera is behind a plexiglass window up in a pressbox?

I noticed it last night and was really pissed off. The only other times that I have noticed that happening on Fox is when they have a lot of other graphics on the screen. I almost turned off the game because of that crappy picure. I am glad I didn't cuz that was an instense finish.

Yea it resembled more of a hockey match than a football game. Still a lot of fun and high drama. By far one of the most intertaining finishes this season.

[quote] I am glad I didn't cuz that was an instense finish. [quote]Yup indeedy. Nothing like watching one's team flush themselves into the toliet. And then, when they get a penalty advance thrown their way, Williams has to kick a little ass to nullify it. And don't get me started on that field goal kicker...

Overall, more enjoyable than the Simpsons was, and that was a better one of late. Glad I'm a Jets fanPosted Image

Yes, it was very blurry, especially when the camera moved. My brother called me and asked about it too. We were watching on GLOBAL in Canada which I assume just takes the FOX feed. The crowd shots too were just a massive blur. Apparently, this affected the refs on the final play of the game!
