Today I connected my PS2 to my LCD using the IXOS component cable, expecting the pq to improve!! :thumbsdow !!

But its actually arse :mad: The RGB out was much more impressive :confused:

I have changed the PS2's output to component out. Is there any other setting that needs to be doe on the LCD???

:suicide:
 
Nope. What LCD are you using? I'm amazed to hear of an LCD that handles a European-only format better than a more worldwide one.

Its a Samsung LE32R51BD. The game which I was playing is Pro Evo Soccer 5!
 
That's odd, for the brief period I had a Samsung LCD, the RGB SCART picture was really bad but the Component was acceptable. Of course there's a ton of different versions as far as I know.

What exactly looks bad about the image?

The screen is, think the term is Jaggie!

I have run Burnout 3 through this and it looks great :suicide:

Is it possible that only certain games will be improved with the component cable? :rolleyes:

No. What is possible though is that the generally crap looking games will look worse on an LCD since the flaws stand out much more than on a good looking game.

how did u do this??

my ps2 has no component outputs, did u get an adapter from somwhere?
component leads are available which have the PS2 connnector one end and the 5 component connectors the other, as already said IXOS do one.

The component cable just makes the graphics clearer and more defined so you can see jagged edges more clearly. Game developers must only have had CRTs in mind because they tend to soften these edges

Perhaps it's just the game? (Pro Evolution Soccer 5)

I've found that both PES4 and PES5 look very poor on my lcd (32LXD500) but other games look sweet. Has anyone got a PS2 version of Pro Evo to look good on their lcd?
