Re: My picture and on screen text has gone blurry like a 3d effect, we have a normal samsung TV

Hi Craftyjan,

 

Good morning and thank you very much for taking the time to reach out to the Community Smiley Happy Id like to wish you a warm welcome from the team and I.

 

I'm sorry to read about the TV, that 3D effect must give you quite a headache! I'd love to help and just so we're narrowing this down, can you tell me what box you're viewing this on, just so I can delve in a little deeper for you? Smiley Happy

 

In the meantime, I have some first hand tips for. Can you please have a go at the following for me please?:-

 

  • Give the cable a look at, are they in tightly, check the HDMI cable or possibly try an additional one if possible?
  • Are you seeing this on certain times of day?
  • Does this happen on specific channels or is this all around blurriness regardless?

With that all tried out please get back to me when you can and take care.

 

Speak to you soon.

 

Ben Smiley Happy

The box it happens on is the TIVO Box,l have been told its called ghosting, but not sure if that is correct

Ghosting is something that happened in the old Analogue TV days, when you had trees or buildings interfering the signal to the TV aerial. It won't be anything to do with what you're seeing on the TiVo.

To be honest, if you were able to post a screenshot people would likely have much more of an idea what the problem is (my money is on something wrong in the TV settings).
