Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

How can I hook up the Playstation 2 to my DirectTV Cable box?

I have called DirectTV 2 times asking for Tech Support and keep asking this same question as to how to connect the Playstation 2 gaming system to my DirectTV cable box?
DirectTV says they only have Customer Service and that they can answer my questions, however I have tried their methods and it still does not work? So far my 13 year old is sad as she cannot play her gaming system.
Thanks for your time

How to hook up ps2 to a emerson tv


Hi Bonnie, first, we need to know if your TV is compatible for the connections from the Playstation. The way to tell, is do you have the matching RCA inputs on the TV? These are the Yellow(Y) Red(R) and White(W) cords that come with all PS1's 2's and 3's. (Yes, all years and models are exactly the same) If your TV does NOT have the matching RCA inputs, don't worry! You can still hook it up to the TV, but it will require another piece of equipment. You will need to add a signal converter box(I will put in a link for it) What this does, is lets you plug the cords from the Playstation, into the box, then out too the place where you plug your cable or TV antenna. These boxes are also called RF Modulators. They are available at every local Walmart or Meijers respectively.I hope this helps. Good luck. ^^

Connecting internet to the playstation 3


Before connecting the ethernet cable to the back of your Playstaion3 hold the modem reset button for 15 seconds, when 15 secs are up connect the ethernet cable to your ps3 system, wait until tour Comcast High Speed Internet goes online again (all the lights are showing fine) then try setting up your Playstation connection settings again, it might work since now you have reseted your modem and the modem will send information to new device, I hope this information works for you, :)

You shouldn't need to connect your PS2 to your cable box. Both are video signal sources.

However, some cable boxes do have aux or line inputs. In that case you would connect the yellow, red and white plugs from the PS2 AV cable to your cable box's yellow, red and white inputs. Make sure the jacks you plug in to are labelled input or in, otherwise they're outputs and they won't work.

Playstation 2 slimline


Hi Crazymatt,

You need to connect to the Cablemodem or have a router that will allow connection for both your PS2 and your computer. Connecting to your computer does not allow a path to the internet for your PS2.
