    Hi guys,
    Can anyone who has a ps2 remote
    please tell me if it will switch the console on and off
    i.e into standby.
    I'm not really interested in the dvd
    functions but just want to turn it on & off from a distance
    as it's difficult to reach. Also whats the best one to get?

    If you have a newer PS2 with the built-in infrared receiver then yes it will - you need to get the remote specifically designed for those model PS2's. The older models had to use an IR dongle that plugs into a controller port and they can't be turned off via remote.
