    Come on then, show us your pics of gaming on LCD's. Preferably PS2 using component cable.
    It would be nice to see what I'm missing!!! :(

    I have a Samsung LE32R51BD connected to my PS2 with a component cable and it looks awful!!! :eek:

    Any ideas? :lease:

    are you waiting on samsung re this component issue?. I saw your other thread about turning off the digital audio out in the PS2 menu, is this supposed to improve the picture? My games look quite jagged but I put this down to them being clearer and showing up all the pixels instead of blurring them on a crt?

    Get an Xbox360 :D

    Seriously though, I don't have high expectations from a SD games console and LCD - I have an Xbox, but will be upgrading to 360 very soon - thats when the LCD screen will come into its own IMHO.

    Hopefully someone will offer you some more constructive advice.

    Basically yeah!

    I'm thinking that my expectations for pq are probably a bit high! But if anyone has pics of PS2 gaming on LCD using component connection then at least I can compare the two...cheers. :)

    Cheers mate your a star :thumbsup:

    I have to say that the pq when watching DVD, SKY..etc is great so I do not think its a problem with the TV. And the PS2 is brand new, only picked it up on Thursday. Cable also only delivered on Friday.

    Well I bought the new PES5 footie game to play on this or any of these

    SOCOM II
    TOCA2
    Heroes of the pacific
    Killzone

    Any of these would do, but it would be nice to see a pic of any PS2 game on LCD.

    Looking forward to the PS2 screenshots on your LCD thelurch as I am about to buy an LCD and also have a PS2 (and Xbox) and want to see how the PS2 looks via component ;)

    I wouldn't mind seeing any of the 3D fighting games like Soul Calibur II or III, Tekken 4 or 5 etc in progressive scan mode and any other game that doesn't support pscan as I want to see how good your LCD scales a standard definition (480i) picture.

    Thanks.

    I think its 100kb per image but your better off using this image hosting site:

    http://www.imageshack.us/

    That way you got a 1024kb (1MB) size per image limit :thumbsup:

    Apologies for quality as this is my fisrt attempt at taking photos of TV screens!

    thelurch,

    If it isn't any trouble, can you take a few in-game screenshots of Soul Calibur III on your LCD with progressive scan on?

    I'm also playing this game at the moment so its a game I can relate to at the moment to identify the quality.

    Also, is your Samsung the 26" version or 32"?

    Thanks! :thumbsup:
