    Hi!

    Does anyone here know, how to get a PS2 or PS2 slim console to work on a BenQ computer monitor which has DVI-D and VGA inputs? I would much like to play my old games sometimes but I do not own a television at the moment.

    Apparently I need somekind of an adapter box which upscales the signal? Can you suggest some working adapters for me? They would have to be available in Europe.

    I'm looking to get my PS2 to work on a extra BenQ computer monitor I have, and ofcourse it would be nice if I could get the sound output working too.

    It would be cheaper if you would just get an old CRT TV and the result would actually be better. You would need a VGA box to upscale the signal (~100 Euro) and the result would not look good.
    Atleast here in Germany you can get a used CRT TV for free, nobody wants them anymore since LCDs have become relatively cheap.

    Okay thanks for the reply and suggestion, I guess I'll go on a look for cheap old tv:s then, problem being the little space I have in my apartment, but perhaps I'll find something that fits.
