I recently acquired a pair of Voodoo2 cards from Poland/Amibay. I've attached a photo. If my memory is correct, they are of brand Atrend? I noticed that the image, when in 2D mode, sometimes exhibits these faint diagonal ghosting bars in bypass mode. A Matrox G200 is being used for 2D with a quality pass-through cable. These faint transparent ghosting bards look like noise and are across the whole screen. They sometimes go away completely and 2D image looks really clear, but some minutes later, the faint ghosting bars return.
I tried to take a photo of the monitor to show the ghosting bars but it didn't show up well.
This happens on both of the Voodoo2 cards. I have not seen this happen with my other Voodoo2 cards. It bothers me and I ultimately pulled the pair out and put in an SLI pair from STB. I am wondering if the switching circuit which handles the pass through needs to be replaced, if there is just too much noise occurring on the PCB around the switches, or if this brand is notorious for this issue? Is the issue easy to fix?
