Alright, it's like this. I have a European ps2 and live in the states. What I'm trying to do is somehow fix it so that I can play my PAL games on my laptop using my european ps2. All I need is to have my laptop show the picture coming from the ps2. So basicly I want to use my laptop screen as a regular tv screen. Because pal games don't run properly here in the States.

How would I do this?

Is there better ways of being able of playing pal games in the states?
Thanks

Why not just use the same system? :hdbash:

Being that it's a laptop, you can get a USB socket TV card, and set the tv application as incoming video signal being PAL.:) I've done this with imported games on my US PS2 that would otherwise make the screen b/w and flip.

Try your local major electronics store (Best Buy, Circuit City, etc.) or you can look on newegg.com.

Hmm

My playstation is PAL, I am in the States, I need something with which I'll be able to play NTSC and PAL on my PAL playstation, on a NTSC tv or my laptop. If someone could give me something that would do this, I would be forever grateful ! :thumb:

So all I need is a USB socket thing. That will make me able of plugging the PS2 into my laptop, and then an RGB cable to play the different "regions" of games. That would work?

The laptop should be able to handle both NTSC and PAL format, right?

You can play different region games without any RGB cables, etc... Just switch to either PAL or NTSC mode in the TV application, and you're set.;)

I bought one a few years ago (a Hauppauge WinTV USB) for about $40 US brand new. Here's a link to the model I have.: http://hauppauge.com/pages/products/data_usb.html

Should be able to do both signal types just fine through composite or SVideo if you want. Just make sure to set the signal mode in the tv application.;)
