    Ok I have this Component Cable Switch http://www.whitedog.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=421

    and I have hooked up in the 3 component ports, on the switch

    1 = xbox > Hi Def component cable

    2= gamecube nintendo component cable

    3= PS2 http://www.tvcables.co.uk/cgi-bin/tvcables/XPP04.html

    when I switch to 1 the xbox comes on >> when I switch to 2 >> the gamecube comes on >> but when I switch to 3 I get no signal.

    I have tried plugging in the PS2 component cable direct to the plasma and I still cant get any type of signal.

    tried it with the orginal scart that came with my PS2 and that works fine, but I just cant seem to get a signal from this IXos component cable even thou its setup correctly.

    any ideas ??

    Have you set it to component in the menu?
    If so I think you'll find it's your PS2 at fault,,how old is it?
    I have 3 PS2's all between 3-4 years old, none work via component cable (I've tried two different cables) all I get is an occasional scrolling broken picture with mostly a no signal message.
    I hear it's a software/firmware issue, I've not found out if it can be fixed yet, but have been told the newer silver PS2's are ok via component.

    Hi,
    I bought one of these component switchers and the output
    marked '3' seems not to work properly. Having said that I had a dodgy
    component cable. I now have a monster gamelink cable and that works
    fine. The cable that did not work produce a picture that was very distorted and kept flashing on and off.
