But you bought a "VGA/XGA box or TV Tuner" noted at
This will get it working but don't delude yourself. The PS2 outputs 480i signals so it may look a little sharper on the AOC display but never awesome no matter what you use since it is only 480i.
And I decline to write what 480i is here. You can google that.
I own a AOC F-22 monitor and have a PlayStation 2 console and a Macsense TV Tuner box coming in, which I purchased online. I am planning on connecting the PS2 console to my monitor.
Macsense TV Tuner box.
I visited the Macsense website and read that the Macsense TV Tuner box is a Apple hardware product, but also stated that its Mac and PC compatible so I went ahead and purchased it anyway.
The AOC F-22 monitor has both VGA and DVI connectors.
Does anyone have any experience with connecting PlayStation 2 console to a PC monitor?
For instance: except for the use of a TV Tuner box or VGA box, is it possible to simply connect the console directly to a monitor using Composite/Component or S-Video to VGA/DVI cables if there are indeed such cables?
If not, could the use of couplers, splitters or adapters provide a solution to connect PlayStation 2 console to monitor?
If so, would the resolution displayed be as good if not better as when connecting the console to a regular TV?
How and what method of connecting the console can be used to get awesome resolution on the monitor?
I can't afford a TV right about now, and I have the PS2 coming in next week. I have the monitor on standby, so I am a little anxious to start playing. I am, however, wondering about these technical details for my own curiosity. Believe me, I have searched the web, but all I got were short, exploratory answers like "Buy a VGA/XGA box or TV Tuner". The VGA/XGA box which I cant afford along with the PS2 console.
I figured, I'd start a Topic to get things rolling.
I know that there are a lot of technical wizards out there who might have done, seen or heard this being done before. So let's just have at it.
