    Hello,

    After some help...

    I have just ordered a PS2 component + L/R audio lead from here...

    http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71...0-1b4-43-3.html

    Just arrived. Plugged it into my new small PS2 (with GT4 disc in it...) and plugged the lead into my new screenplay 4805. I selected the component input. Screen blank!

    Have I done something wrong?
    Does the new little PS2 support component out?
    Does this lead work with the new little PS2?
    Does GT4 not work with this lead?
    Projector works on composite with both my xbox and my ps2...

    The Xbox Component lead (the proper MS one will arrive in a couple of days)
    So should then know if it is my ps2/lead or my projects RGB input...

    Help appreciated...

    There's an option on the PS2 setup screens, where you have to select RGB or component (or at least there is on my 'old' style PS2). Have you done this?

    I agree. The difference going from composite Scart to component on my 26" LCD was amazing.

    I have a screenplay 4805 projector.

    This is comparing the composite output with the component output using the lead supplied from Asia for £11 inc shipping.

    Hopefully my Xbox component lead (original MS version) will arrive shortly.

    Question:
    Will I see a big improvement going to a dedicated DVD for movies from the xbox with component on the Projector (about 2.2 metre image)?
