Anyone good at this sort of thing?
Here's what a component signal from my PS2 looks like, using nice Sony (or cheap madkatz, for that matter) cables.
(so, yes, I'm relatively sure it's nothing on the wire-side, as I get the same effect regardless of what console is plugged in. I am using a switch box, but it has no effect on the signal quality, that I can tell.)
TV is one of the last Toshiba 24" CRT SDTVs.
I don't expect this stuff to look perfect, but this amount of ghosting seems a bit excessive.
So, can anyone put a name to this particular problem? Actually signal-side or display-side?
