What do I need in order to connect PS2 to monitor and have audio as well? TV Tuner?

Well, I was cruising along and saw this post so i decided to present you with some of the options for doing this..

You can get a sony vga adapter, available as part of the linux kit which has been on the market for several years, note this is only compatable with the PS2, meaning the larger version with the accessory bay in the bottom, as opposed to the PStwo which is the slim design currently available.

Compatible with either model you can get a vga upscan convertor which will plug into your ps2 and allow you to use the monitor for either the ps2 or your computer, at the flip of a switch. some of them require special drivers(a disc you boot the ps2 with that enables the adapter, then prompts for you to insert your ps2 game to continue) while other models rely on the component output. typical price range last time I looked was from $20 up to $100, I would recommend spending around 50-75 because for this type of device I have found you get what you pay for...

as a last resort you can run the signal into your tv tuner card, preferably using the s-video signal. however it by far will be the worst of your options...

as for the audio, most of the upscan converters will have a stereo audio out jack that you can run to your sound cards line-in, or personally i use the optical connection, which tends to be much cleaner sound...

hope this helps get you started, feel free to ask me any questions and i'll answer them as i have time.

I was having a lil difficult time understand what you were saying. I can go with the first opition. Where can I buy this? I have a larger PS2 model so which one should I get? Sony VGA Adapter? How does this works? Could you give me a link to it? Anything else? How do i exactly use the optical connection to connect PS2 to soundcard? I have Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy ZS Platinum.


Thanks for taking your time to respond.

Well I just read this up Sony VGA adapter. Apprently, it doesn't seem to works too well with many video games.

This is the video card I will be getting. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102629

Does it act as video tuner? Can it be used to connect PS2 to it?

Here is a referral http://www.lik-sang.com

If you go to their PS2 link + VGA Adapters or Cable/Adapters you may find what you need.
They have video/audio cables for PS2 but they are for high def or s-video..not sure what type of monitor you have but check em out. I have ordered from them before.
