i'm new to this forum so, hi everyone and thanks for your help. well as the title says, i have a PS2 and i want to connect it to my 19" Hanns.G LCD display. i did some searching around and found out i could use either a VGA converter box or a Sony S-Video/composite cable that could connect to my computer. but some people say that there are some side affects to playing a PS2 on an LCD (ghosting, loss of quality, etc.) depending on the converter box or a cable. my questions are: 1. should i buy a VGA converter box or the Sony S-Video/Composite cables? 2. if i buy the Sony S-Video/Composite cable, will it be able to connect to my computer? my computer has a 7-pin S-Video jack. 3. how do i display the PS2 once i have it connected to the LCD? 4. how do i connect desktop speakers to the PS2? i know these are a lot of questions coming from a newbie to this forum, but i would greatly appreciate your help!
