I had this same problem and i found out it was because I had the time zones set differently on each device. Make sure you set the time zone the same on all your devices. That should fix the problem.

I sure would like to know why since I activated mobile me I have 100+ home calendars. All with duplicate entries.
Very annoying.

On your phone did you set "Time Zone" to "Automatically or manually to your location? I cant wait to get home and see what do I have on my iMac since having everything showing up twice is annoying as hell.

Time Zone was not it because all of mine are set to EDT New York, so I am now looking all my other options, if I find something I will be sure to post it here.

Time Zone is not working for me. However, the reason why I have double entry for all my events is because when I go to the all Calendars I can see that i have "From My Mac" and "MobileMe"so I am not sure which one should I use on my iPhone to make sure everything gets synced.

I changed my timezone, even tough it was technically correct, and I went from 263 calendars to 83. Why still 83 even though I specifically only checked 4 in the iPhone/iTunes sync box.
Perplexing. :confused:

OK there we go, this is the solution, or it was in my case, I am syncing thrugh MobileMe and it works, my problem was that I was syncing thriuhg iTunes and MObile me so i had to remove iTunes Sync and just go through MobileMe.
