    In need of a little help. :lease:

    I have just bought a panasonic viera 32" HD TV. I'v plugged my playstation 2 in and it looks pathetic. All the colours and sharpness have gone.

    My Question is, what is the best cable / way of connection to get the best from my TV?

    Also, where and how should I plug them in.

    I'm a new comer to all this, so please be gentle.

    Thanks :)

    A component cable is the best you can get for the PS2.

    No that is a composite cable. It looks similar to component but the cable you have is only using one plug for the picture and two for the sound.

    Component uses three plugs for the picture.
