PS2 on Computer

PS2 is used for keyboards and mice,
while composite is a TV in- or output signal.
They are not compatible with each other.
Composite doesn't even look like a PS2 connection (svideo does)
If you want to use the video output on your graphic card, then you can use the svideo output or composite (mostly composite is used using a connector cable)

For more help I need to know what kind of graphic card you use (to know what the composite can do) and in case you have a capture card, use the software provided or some free software like virtualdub

sorry for the lateness of this reply,
I am quite busy at the moment and didn't find time until now,
The VIVO does stand for video in and output I think so it should have something.
But when I check for exampele Asus Nvidia EN6600GT, 128MB Tv-out, DVI,2*VGA,PCIX or Aopen 6600GT 128Mb,AGP8X nVIDIA,Tvout,DVI,8X,DX9 I see both do not support video input. So probably you have a different card.
What is the brandname and full description of it?
Then I can maybe find out what is needed.
You can always try to install virtualdub and try to get an image of it.
Also make sure that you send an image there when testing.

As I mentioned before it seems that this card does not have TV-input.
The cabling you show is only needed for TV-output.
If you need a TV-input you need a TV-capture card from hauppage, pinnacle or some other or an all in one graphic card like the ati all in wonder series.
If you have a digital camera you can normally hook it up with a firewire cable, if not you need a capture card, and take care about video capturing because it takes a lot of HD-space.

Do not use a capture program to play games on your PC screen because there is a small delay in input signal and show on the monitor, mostly this is about 1,5 seconds. This is to long for gaming. The capture cards and software, does not mather what brand will have delays so don't use it for that. You could buy a monitor with the svideo or coax input so you can view directly. To capture your old vhs tapes you can use some capture card. I use the Pinnacle deluxe USB 2 and that can record DVD quality. Hauppage has a similar card and USB device.
So take you pik

i was just surfing random posts and came upon yours. i did some quick research and found a quick and easy solution.
(i am in no way, advertising, or affiliated with the seller, manufacter of the product or the like)
there are many converters like it. this setup allows you to have a simultaneous setup, where your monitor can be linked to both your ps2 and pc at the same time. you could also buy another a/v multi-adapter to avoid the hassle of d/c the ps2 and plugging in your vcr, video camera, or anything else that you possibly would want to do on ure monitor.
i do not know of the quality of that ebay product, and i am NOT ENDORSING IT. please do more research if you plan to buy it. i do not want to be blamed if you get it and you dont like it.
and i also want to add that you are not syncing to the ps2 thru ure computer like you would a capture card. instead the converter acts as its own type of dv router, so that either the pc, or ps2 can use the monitor.
so if ure intention was to connect the ps2 thru the computer so you can record your gameplay and the like, then this setup will not allow you to do so unless you connect a vcr, or any other video in recording device, to the converter, and connect ure ps2 to that. but if all you wanted was to let your monitor take the place of a tv, for space conserving, or to save money, then a setup similar to the one i described above is probably the way to go.
hope i was of some of help to you

i checked out the link for your gfx card and it looks like your card should be able to support your ps2. but you would definitely need some sort of software for it.
if you cant find the sofware cd with your package, click on that link. and its loaded with tons of media software for your geforce card. (however im not sure if the software is compatible with your card because your version is released by leadtek. nonetheless it doesnt hurt to try)
i read thru a couple of them. the software entitled multi-view seems like it may be the answer to the problem, and seems like it would be complemented well by media center. (both are on that link)
i checked the leadtek website and it turns out they really didnt offer anything helpful. so before you buy anything try the software (make sure you configure it correctly), and also make sure the video is plug is connect correctly as well. if your card and ps2 have s-video ports, that would probably be the best way to go to avoid any confusion of how to properly connect your hardware.
in the end, to play your ps2, you'll probably have to run a certain program, before it comes up on ure monitor screen. if you get that far,
then let me know.
then ill try to help you figure out how to get sound if you dont already get it.
good luck on ure gaming setup
