i know you guys will know.
What connections have you got avaliable???
If you are just asking for the best then via component
you can get a cheap component lead for PS2s from ebay mate, i did the same from my xbox and the picture is crisper than Prince Charles' Hairpiece.
Component. Search ebay or google "PS2 component" - loads of cheapos available. For posh stuff IXOS and MONSTER have dedicated console leads.
i have no input boards apart from a scart which i currently use with the yellow plug and adaptor thingy.
if i need a different input board in order to get a batter picture, then i'll get one. it would seem component is the ideal, so i guess i'm gonna need a lead and a terminal board.
thanks again for the advice.
And get rid of that yellow plug adaptor crap and run a proper RGB scart lead. Set your DVD and STB (Sky, Freeview, Cable etc) to RGB output and be amazed at the improvement!!!
Hey andy I have connected my PS2 into my sky + box via rgb scart (about a tenner from game) then into the plasma. dvd connected via component, works a treat.
my sky runs to vga through the scart to vga convertor. my skybox is set to rgb.my dvd is connected to the scart board and does the job well enough when it's in use, i dont really use my plasma for movie watching as such as i have a home cinema for that.
just daisy chain PS2 via sky or dvd both will work
zest, cheers mate, my skybox only has scart out's to tv and video. obviously the one to the tv is in use. is the one to video useable for ps2? it's a fairly old pace box, must've had it about 3-4 years.
should work mate if the video scart on sky box is an input, but not 100% sure. works with my sky box
cheers mate, i'll have a play about, i've got one of the rgb scart cables (blaze) that you talk of, i just haven't tried it out of laziness really, couldn't be arsed disconnecting it all from my games room tele and stereo. maybe i'll just buy another.
thanks for your help. i think the video scart on the skybox is an outputting one only.in fact i think they both are, tightwads!! never mind.
yeah i know what you mean it can be a bit of a ball ache and head test all this av malarkey
it's our own faults though, some people are happy with a 21" combi and a video player. serves us right for being poncey b**tards
