I've got my PS2 Slim connected to my LCD TV but the picture is terrible. It's quite jaggy and puts me off playing. Maybe it's because I'm used to play my PS3 and 360 in HD but I'm sure the picture was better when playing it on an old fat TV years back.
Anyone got any suggestions on how to improve the picture? It's connected by the scart cable that came with it in to the RGB scart on the back of my TV.
Any suggestions would be appreciated, I've just got Persona 4 and really want to play it.
You have set it to 16:9 yeah?
Also, use an RGB scart cable if you don't already.
Try getting hold of a ps2 component lead, it'll have five phono leads on the end that plugs into the tv, red/green/blue for picture and red/white for sound.
Just remember the picture quality ain't gonna be hi-def, though it's better than using a scart lead on your lcd tv.
P.S. The picture quality still won't be a good as using a scart lead on an old style crt tv as you mentioned in your post.
Hope this helps.
As said before, use a component cable and if it looks crap just turn the sharpness down to reduce the appearance of jaggies and pixelation
Thanks for the suggestions. I've got my Wii connected via component so won't be able to use that.
Is the scart that came with the PS2 RGB? Or do I need to keep an eye out for one?
Using the Multi AV cable you get with the PS2 and the Scart adaptor box (plug in box with the 3 jacks on one side and the scart on the other) only gives you composite and not proper RGB scart video.
What you need is an RGB Scart Multi AV lead.....something like this.
This works the same as the other type BUT utilises all 21 pins of the scart instead of about 5pins(Yellow,Red,White,Left audio,Right audio).
P.S Look inside your existing scart box adaptor and you will see that there's not 21 pins inside being used.....
P.P.S although this is the best connection for a PS2 to an LCD TV it still may look a little.....meh....as your used to PS3 upscaling the video signal.
This is the main reason I want Sony to release a new PS3 model that is backwards compatible with PS2 games.
It can upscale the graphics and send it over a digital HDMI cable to the HDTV, which will make it look noticeably better than something from an analogue cable.
But Sony don't seem to put any priority at making their userbase pleased.
