PS2 to monitor?

#1 Posted by wefwefasdf (6729 posts) -

I recently bought a PS2 from a friend of mine but I have run into a problem. The only tube TV we have in our house is absolutely tiny and makes playing PS2 games very annoying. I have a 22" monitor that I use with my computer and want to plug it in to that but I don't know which route to go.
 
Should I get a VGA Box or a TV Tuner Card for my computer? Anyone want to recommend one that they use or know about? I don't know where to start.

i'd get a PS2-VGA cable and connect it directly to your monitor.

Do they sell those? I don't think they exist.

I believe this video may be of help. And yes, a PS2 VGA cable likely is made. Might be hard to find one though.

It sounds like getting a VGA Box is the best way to go. The best one I could find is pretty expensive so I think I'll do some more browsing.

I found a program that works amazingly with my Dazzle. It is called DScaler 4 if anyone is interested.
