can only get my boys ps2 to work on composite leads when using it on his 17" lcd so i need a box that can accept two composite in signals and one composite out, do they make such a thing because the freeview box that came with the lcd also outputs via composite
i can see what your saying joe, but bearing in mind the input on the lcd is composite ( there is no scart input ) will it still work, also would i need a proper ps2 to scart lead as i am using a ps2 to composite which plugs into a scart connector which only seems to have a few connecting pins, i hope you can understand what i am saying, thanks again john
The connectivity plan outlined above is still the same all you require is a SCART to 3RCA cable (Composite + Stereo audio) between the Output of the SCART switch and the TV (which I'm guessing is what you already use between the Freeview and the TV).
Its fine to use a 'SCART' block adapter on the end of the PS2 to 3RCA 'Composite + Stereo audio' cable - the JS Technology switcher will switch Composite, S-Video or RGB plus Stereo audio.
Connectivity therefore is:
DVD > Freeview (SCART to SCART)
Freeview to SCART switch (SCART to SCART)
PS2 > SCART Switch (PS2 cable + SCART adapter block)
SCART switch to TV (SCART to 3RCA cable).
joe i dont think i explained my problem very well as i can see how it should connect up, when i plugged the ps2 lead in the back of the freeview ie the scart connector into aux scart, i got a picture on the display but i could not get any sound, so surely if i use the same ps2 to scart connector i will still not have any sound ?
