Hi, I just bought a Slimline PS2 (should arive in the next few days) and I wanted to know if anyone had this xploder hdtv disc yet?
I will be connecting the PS2 to my PC monitor, which is a TV-monitor, so it has the S-Video and... oh whats that yellow-red-white ports called again? Anyway, I want the best picture quality on my games and wanted to know how this disc works? Obviously my monitor is not HD but I want a sharp crisp picture . If this wont work for me, I'm also considering a monster cable
Well my PS2 is should arrive tomorrow morn by 9am, so I'm very excited about it, however now that I bought one, I have like less than a pound left :P so until I get paid next, I'll have to make do with the video cable that comes with the console...
Did I mention it was used? Aka, I also have to buy my own memory card! Nooo!
If you end up buying the Xploder let us know how it is. I would love to play Guitar Hero II in 720p. The native 480p option in the game is a massive improvement over the standard 480i. I can't even imagine how good 720p looks.
Yeah, I am looking forward to it too It will be a while until I get it thou, My PS2 has been delayed in the post somewhere So I'm hoping it will arrive 2mo only 3 days late! Then I need to buy a memory card, then an oxygen free copper cable THEN Xploder HDTV ...
But I'll keep you posted when I get it to see the performance differences with it
It's the slimline model, very slim actually, I was suprised when I took it out the box, but it works just like the old one...aka the graphics are the same on my TV-monitor, so I'll be buying a monster cable (just not a monster cable, but a cheap version, gold plated s-video oxygen free cable) in two weeks with my next pay check.
One thing in particular is that the graphics look as thou there is no Anitaliasing, by that I mean the edges of characters and most objects look like they have jagged lines and nothings smooth
Well it was either oxygen-free or something like nitrogen... some sort of gas lol
However, I may have found a much easier way for me to play my PS2 on my monitor, but its a tad complicated to explain
I have one AGP graphics card with one VGA port which has my main monitor plugged in, and it also has a DVI port which I have a second monitor plugged into... NOW, If I were to use a VGA box or some sort of PS2 to VGA adaptor cable/converter, how do I set that up, if I can?
Oh about the audio thats already sorted, I have a very high quality durable optical cable plugged into my X-Fi so I can play with 5.1 when the PC is on, so no need to worry about audio
