The I-link S400 port does not supply power to devices.  If your tv requires a powered S400 port, then the port is not capable of working.  Check the instructions for using firewire on your tv to see if it requires a powered S400 port.  From my experience, the S400 Firewire port is not a video output. The network connection your calling firewire is a slve type situation because is does not have a power output. You can connect the PS2 into a IEEE 1394 network, and that is supposed to be plug and play.

I connect my ps2 to my lg 32 inch lv3730.It is a full hd 1080p tv. Yet,the graphic quality is very very bad.Even bad than a 15 year old tv.I played it on both lg and very old samsung but the very old...

The problem is your PS2 only outputs 480 resolution video and doesn't upconvert to 1080p. It's going to look awful on 1080p television. Your output and your display have to match in order to achieve quality video results. It will look fine on a 480 resolution set like your old TV's because that's what it was designed for. If you want a better looking game experience on your 1080p TV, upgrade to a PS3.

You look for the video and audio outputs available from your camera, the standard analog type are video composite (yellow RCA connector) and audio L channel (white RCA connector), R channel (red RCA connector), if the audio output is mono, you should have a black RCA connector, the you should look the corresponding inputs at your TV set and select them. If you have a digital output, usually a firewire connection, you should look for the cable and corresponding input at your TV set.

S-video output not working

I think your problem is because the monitor is not activated. Right click desktop, click properties, click settings. Drag the gray scaled monitor on top of the black monitor and click ok and it should send the signal to the external monitor. try draging the mouse over to it because by default the external screen will be black.

Hope this helps!

Trying to hookup ps2 to direct TV.have found a couple solutions that didn't work.

This is not a problem with the PS2, it is configuration of the Direct TV. Be sure that the port of the TV works. Or if you are trying to connect to your Direct TV box, you it will not work if your connecting to output connection. You can only connect the PS2 to a Video Input.

Most game machines have their signal output on channel 3 or 4.

If you TV isn't set to the proper channel, you will see nothing.

Playback on external device.

The SV-AV100 and the SV-AV50 come with an A/V cradle that allows you to connect to external devices for recording and playback. The SV-AS10 and SV-AV25 are not equipped for this operation.
