I have an HP Pavilion Media Center m8200n PC with an HP w2207 monitor. It makes it very clear that I can connect my satellite box to the computer but I would like to connect my PlayStation 2 to it as well. Do I need an adapter? Help!

I'm pretty sure you can't hook up your PS2 to work with your computer monitor as a ps2's GPU is meant to work with a tv.

The GPU has no idea what it is outputting to, only what format to output it in. Since the PS2 outputs using a composite video signal, and your monitor probably has either a VGA or DVI input, there is no way to connect the two unless you convert the signal. In order to do this, you need a special scan converter which can cost hundreds of dollars. For that price, you are better off buying a TV with a VGA, DVI, or HDMI input and just hook your computer up to it (and of course the PS2 could be hooked up to it too).
