connecting PS2 to PC

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
hey, I know you can do it...but like do you HAVE to have it hooked up to your tv via an S-video connection I dont see why you cant just plug the in end in the card...then plug in the sound, video and other thing then turn it on and go...why does it need to be connected to your tv as well? My tv doesnt have S-vid...so is there any other way to do it without having to use that? and without having to buy a tv card?

You should get an RF adapter to use on your tv...

I use the VIVO on my card. The drivers can be found here for Video In, then I use a program called Booru Webcam (here) to view it. Thats PS2 into computer. For sound I plug the phonos straight into my speakers, or line in.
Hope that helps, it's the best way I've found to play PS2 on PC sp far. Quality isn't great, and neither is refresh rate, but it works.
Edit:
I use the box that came with the card for all the physical connections: nVidia VIVO box
Side closet to foot is OUT (Svideo, Y, Pb/Comp, Pr) and other side is IN (Video, SVideo). I plug the yellow cable from the PS2 straight into the Video In, and use Booru to do the rest.

what wrong with the many stores that sell them?

http://www.consolefever.com/customer...?productid=698

http://www.gocybershopping.com/custo...ctid=668&cat=3

http://ps2modchip.com/search.php?page=dvdx

http://www.gameshopusa.com/default.php?cPath=21_22

if your not sure about the buy, i would just recommened going to a bunch of stores and asking them if they stock these items, Circuit City, Best Buy, Fries, CompUSA...there are many electronic stores out there, and even the small computer store businesses , you can ask the owner or cashier to order an item for you.
