Just Curious About PS2 & Smart TV

My son wanted some old PS2 games for Christmas. I plugged in the old PS2 to make sure it still worked. I put in NCAA 06 and man did it look awful on the smart TV we have. Do I need to decrease resolution or something like that? I might want to start a dynasty on it again, but not the way it looked on that TV. Thanks for any help.

Using a PS2 to HDMI converter works decently enough. Theyíre pretty cheap and can be easily snagged from Amazon

Re: Just Curious About PS2 & Smart TV

I used component cables with the PS2 connector on the other end. I then switched the settings to 16:9 aspect ratio. Iím ok with those results. Itís definitely going to be a downgrade from what youíre used to on the later gens, but the gameplay makes up for that drop off tremendously.

Yessir the gameplay is definitely the ticket. If youíve got a decent pc though... the sky is the limit!

Definitely. With a good graphics card, no PS3 era football game stands a chance.

Funny I JUST finished week 1 of a new TX State coach mode dynasty in 14. It plays pretty good on my 2020 Acer Nitro 5 (Ryzen 4600H, GTX 1650) but those fans definitely turn though. Lol

Re: Just Curious About PS2 & Smart TV

Initially I was curious about this device when it seemed to be a budget friendly RGB to HDMI solution to use my Playstation with my HD TV but you're better off using whatever cables you console came with and hooking up to your TV that way as I'm sure it'll look just as good if not better than this junk.
