what cable shall i get, or how can i improve it. im using the composite to scart atm
In what way does it look rubbish?
Get the PS2 RGB cable, that should improve the quality a tad.
Might be the same issue I had when I hooked my Xbox 1 upto my Sammy LCD TV. Looks rubbish through even a RGB scart lead because the resolution is too low for the screen (I assume?) so it blurs it. A bit like setting a PC TFT monitor to a resolution anything other than native. Luckily I could use a component lead to sort it.
Only way to improve it would be to see if you can get component leads for the PS2, but I think support for it is pretty poor.
its blocky and the colours are blurring.
i am using a the rgb scart for sky, do i need a spliter?
Buy a component cable, I have one and the picture looks much better. Also it allows you to play certain games in high definition and progressive scan.
damn, i was gonna use component for the 360
how about s video, is it any good
You can get vga adaptors for the xbox 360, and you get vga to dvi adaptors as well so you can connect that by dvi if your tv doesnt have vga in.
Crap compared to component, its better than what you have now but worse than scart.
ah ok, vga is being used up , svideo sounds bad
But it'll still be an analogue signal, just passed over a different type of plug, so the TV will still have to accept an analogue input (as in not DVI-D only).
RGB/Component on the PS2 should be miles ahead of the Composite, as composite looks awful on my 21" CRT TV, so I daren't imagine what it looks like on an LCD
What inputs does the TV have?
right here we go. its got
1x normal scart
hdmi!! is the best
vga is slightly worse
component is worse than vga
svideo is slightly worse than component
composite is wprse than svid
rgbscart is worse than composite
scart is worse than rgb
though the best to use for a ps2 is component, which is what i use,
until ps3 and hdmi outports come along
Well some of those are wrong:
Component / VGA (both have advantages / disadvantages)
No such thing as just 'SCART', 'SCART' will be either: RBG or Composite. And RGB is far better than composite.
Go for S-Video, it's the best option between Comosite and RGB.
Get one of these and use RGB, or for slightly lower quality S-Video if you don't want to mess around with another adapter.
Alternatively, does the Sky have a spare SCART plug on the back? You could loop the PS2 into the Sky Box then from the Sky box to the TV as normal for a full RGB signal. Depends if you've got a DVD player plugged in that way currently?
umm, suppose well it was roughly correct, imho vga is better than component, rgb better than svideo? looks like i need to brush up my knowledge
VGA / Component, it varys on the TV really, as it depends if it can support the right types of stuff... don't know the details, but there are differences
true, true. i have my ps2 hooked up by component to my lcd tv via component, and i have my pc hooked up by vga, and if i get really close and look at the quality, vga is slightly better quality, but most games run 720x480 i believe, where as my pc runs at 1280x720, but ive tried jak 2,3 true crime:sony and various other games which support progressive scan features and vga is (imho) better.
no honestly there is only one rgb capable scart on the tv. im sure
ah,,, i think it might. just a sec m8. how would the ps2 work if this happened?
would you have to turn of sky to get the ps2 or something?
