    how to set up your ps2 or any games console onto your pc monitor.

    i was just wondering how u achieve this. i have an 8800 GTX and used the wire that arrived with it, plugged one end into the gfx card, and the other end into the 3 cables(yellow white red) and flicked my ps2 on.
    but i dont kno what to do from there
    more confusingly the wire i got with the 8800gtx are coloured red green and blue...

    Well the red/green/blue cables are a component cable, the yellow/red/white cables are a composite cable, they are both different things. I asusme you have connected the yellow/red/white cable to adaptor as shown above which won't work as you would need some kind of composite to component adaptor and this assumes your 8800 even supports VIVO, then I suppose its a case of looking through the NV control panel to see how to use it.

    well either way you'd need some sort of adaptor cos what you are doing currently won't work, either that or just a ps2 to vga adaptor of some kind. so you can plug it straight into the monitor

    if you could tell us the name of the card (like "Foxconn FV-N88XMAD2-ONOC" or " BFG GeForce 768MB 8800GTX OC2") then we could figure out whether your particular card has VIVO or not. but it should be pretty obvious from looking at the box as its not a feature thats kept quiet.

    actually a quick froogle search makes it seem like only the Foxconn card has VIVO on it.. so i would say the chances are your card wont do it.
