    Some movies I watch are filled with ghosting, specifically on the face. This doesn't happen on all DVDS, so my question is it the DVD that is the problem or is this something that I can correct on TV? I've tried all kinds of things but it still happens.

    What do you mean by ghosting? This is not something that you usually see on faces. Ghosting usually means a reflective signal delay that duplicates the video signal shifted over slightly, this happens a lot with poor analog cabling where there is a very faint ghost of the image usually to the right a few pixels or so, and this is much easier seen with hard vertical boundaries such as text and things like that. Is this what you are seeing, or do you mean something else when you use the term 'ghosting'?

    What I see is that when people move on screen, sometimes, not all times, there is a haze across their face and only their face.

    What is your display? Can you describe in more detail or provide an image?
