I have what could only be called a "modest" home thater; but in general I am very happy with it. There is a problem though. When I run a cable directly from the dvd to the television set (27 in magnovox) there is a noticable ghost image the presents itself to the right of any sharp lines, especially dark agains light. When I run a cable through the vcr these lines are gone; however I get a slight fade in and out from the copy protection (presumably). The fade is less noticible that the ghost image so I generally go through the vcr. But why am a settling? It occured to me that it might be the cable I'm using from the dvd player directly to the tv, which came with the player (or tv, don't know). Is it possible or is it maybe just a shitty tv? Thanks for any insight any of you can bring.
