Poor picture quality can occur due to a VHS camera, camcorder, or other peripheral being connected at the same time. Switch off one of the other peripherals. The 'ghost' or double image may be caused by obstruction to the antenna due to high-rise buildings or hills. Using a highly directional antenna may improve the picture quality. The horizontal dotted lines shown on the pictures may be caused by electrical interference, e.g., hair dryer, nearby neon lights, etc. Turn off or remove these.
