More info needed, are you running them on a printer port or through Ren-Cs.

changed parr port to ecp, it reduced spme ghosting but its still there. If anyone can help it would be appreciated. I wanted to add channels the year and this is bumming me out.

Sounds like cable lengths may be too long? What is the length you are using from computer to controller and controller to controller.
