This is symptomatic of overloading of the I/P of the tuner due to high signal levels. Could also be overloading of any other I/P you are using. I would suggest disconnecting each I/P in turn whilst making a test recording and see if you can isolate which one is causing the trouble. If you are using an aerial amplifier to feed the recorder, try and get the gain reduced, or bypass the amplifier to try.

I had a similar problem when my DVD player was using a SCART splitter, it was ghosting from the other machine. I bought a SCART splitter box, higher quality, and it solved the problem.
