PLAYSTATION 2 COMPOSITE VIDETO VGA CONVERTER

I had a "BRAIN STORM"! It would be great to hook up my PS2 to an lcd monitor. I have looked all over for a converter, with no luck at all. Is there such an animal as a composite "RED, WHITE, YELLOW RCA PLUGS" to vga converter and if so where can I get it?

I have a raspberry pi 2 and i want to connect it to this monitor emprex 1704 it doesn't have a dvi,hdmi port or a vga?


Wait, the monitor does not have a DVI port, an HDMI port, or a VGA port?

The only other option I think the monitor could have is S-Video or composite, which would be astounding if that's the case. You can use a HDMI-DVI converter from your RasPi to get out to DVI, then a DVI to VGA converter to get to VGA, but I'm not aware of a VGA to S-Video or composite converter.

I am trying to hook my son's Playstation 2 to my computer moniter, and it's plugged into the back and all I get is the regular computer screen. I hear the noice of the playstation on the monitor though...


Most monitors only have VGA or DVI inputs. the PS2 uses either a composite or a component connector. while the audio cables may be able to be connected fine, it generally isn't feasible to be able to connect the video without a conversion.

If there actually is a connector on the monitor, it may be as simple as switching inputs. there is usually an option on the front panel to switch sources if there are multiple inputs.

hope that helps :)

Turn it on iget audio add video flashis for one second then iget kind of a white or gray screen?


The message you're seeing is part of your monitor's ROM programming. It is its response to an input signal that it doesn't recognize. If someone makes a composite to vga adapter cable, it's because they can sell it, not because it works. While both composite and vga are analog signals, they are not at all the same format. The signal gets to the monitor via the vga connector, but it's still a composite signal. Your monitor is all wtf about it. You can make HDMI to DVI cables, but that's because they carry the same digital signal. There is basically no way to connect a ps2 to a pc monitor that doesn't have composite or component input, unless you spend extra money. That can be on either a signal conversion box, which cost at least $50 and might not work so good, or a capture or tuner card for your pc that can capture the signal and relay it to the monitor as VGA or DVI signal. Either method basically converts the composite/component to vga or digital. There is such thing as a ps2 vga cable, but it doesn't work under the normal ps2 operating system, only under ps2 linux. It's hard to find, too. No point looking for one cause you'd only get to play homebrew games of which there aren't many.

Can you hookup a computer to the sanyo ds32224


Yes, if you get the appropriate converter. You will need either a VGA to component video or VGA to composite video converter. Some of these are available here: http://www.svideo.com/pctocomponent.html . Since the computer VGA port provides an RGB signal and the component video is a YPbPr signal, the converter is essential.

However, the cost of the converter may not be worth using this method when replacement monitors are fairly cheap. (Christmas sales had 19" LCD monitors for under $100 with VGA input.)

I hope this helps.

Bose 3-2-1 - trouble connecting to Samsung 26" LCD monitor


Sounds like you might be out of luck with the older 3-2-1 system. I am in the same boat, and am thinking I will only be able to utilize the "audio out" on the back of my Samsung LCD, and run that to the "aux in" on the Bose 3-2-1. This of course will not allow me to utilize the 3-2-1's DVD player, but by using a seperate DVD player, such as a Blu-Ray hooked to the LDC TV, the video will make it to the screen, and then the audio should make it through the Bose 3-2-1 speakers. Probably not the "best" solution, but one that I am going to attempt.

Ps2 to a pc


sure it is, just get a video convertor cable they sell them at most best buys or ebay dealers

just look for VGA for xbox360, the only problem is the audio, you need a Y cable - RCA cable type, most best buys have them or your local game stop. the resolution wont be great though not like on a TV or a HDTV

Ilo 27 inch hdmi/dvi hd tv monitor


Hi, I'm afraid that not only a cable is needed but an analog (vga) to digital (dvi) converter/scaler as well. The iLo LCD Display V27DMBX-U12 can hook up to a PC using the DVI-I connection only. As you said, your computer has the standard 1D15 pin VGA connector. Another possibility is if your video card has a composite video output (normally a color yellow RCA female) or an S-Video output which will both connect direct to your iLo LCD Display V27DMBX-U12. For the RCA connection all you need is an ordinary RCA to RCA shielded wire cable and for the S-Video, an S to S Video cable will work. There is of course the question about the quality or the resolution. Good luck and hope that this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
