I'm not an expert and I can't realize it from just looking at it.

I want to have WII and PS2 plugged at the same time to a HD MONITOR and switch between them.

2. Choose input from AV, TV, S-Video, YPbPr and VGA

As far as I can tell, there are also two audio inputs: the RCA L/R on the front, and the Line in 3.5mm phone connector on the back, which is really your limiting factor.

The best quality output would involve using the PS2 component output (with an RCA to phone adapter) and the standard composite+RCA for the Wii.

Nice there is a way to do it smile.gif. BUT can u link me what EXTRA do I need to do this? cuz I'm very noob with this stuff.

EDIT: I won't mind having having to unplug audio cables between the 2 consoles, but what about the VIDEO?

Alright, here goes knowledge dump:

Based on the images and description on Amazon, the HD Game Box has the following video inputs (in order from worst to best quality):

Composite Video (the yellow RCA plug): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Composite_video
S-Video (the black PS/2 looking mini-DIN connector): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-video
Component (red, blue, green RCA plugs): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Component_video
VGA (the blue DE-15 connecter): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

There also appear to be two audio inputs:

RCA (white/red) stereo
Line In stereo

There may be some issue with which video goes with which audio (i.e. the RCA only works with Composite/S-Video/Component, but the line in only works with VGA)

Now, accessories you need for PS2/Wii:

Both the PS2 and Wii have games that only work in 480i resolution. This is an interlaced resolution (hence the i), which doesn't work over VGA. Therefore, I'd recommend not using VGA (or, use VGA for your normal computer in). Both the Wii and the PS2 support component video and below. If you want to have both Wii and PS2 plugged in at the same time, you should get a component video cable for one of them, and use composite/s-video for the other. I would recommend using the component cable for the PS2, as some PS2 games support resolutions up to 1080i, where as the Wii maxes out at 480p. However, without the component for the Wii, the best you get is 480i instead of 480p. You could buy an s-video cable for the Wii, which will give you a better looking picture, but it won't give you better resolution.

Component cable for PS2: http://www.amazon.com/Intec-Component-Cable-PS2-Playstation-2/dp/B00005MDZD
Component cable for Wii: http://www.amazon.com/Component-AV-Cable-Nintendo-Wii-HDTV/dp/B000OFSBL6
S-video cable for Wii: http://www.amazon.com/Wii-AV-S-Video-Cable-Packaging-Nintendo/dp/B001B0A3A0

For audio, to convert from RCA to the phone connector, use something like this: http://www.amazon.com/C2G-Cables-40645-Stereo-Adapter/dp/B000J1H4VI
