Excuse my ignorance in this matter, but I just purchased a Panny plasma (my wife actually insisted on it because it "looked better" in the living room) and was wondering how to set up my PS2 for the best gaming?


Right now I have hooked to the composite connection and it looks like crap. The picture doesn't fill the screen even in 16:9 mode (which looks like crap too). Will connecting to the component card improve anything? And if so, do I set the PS2 picture to "full" or 16:9? Any help would be appreciated enormously!

Component will look a lot better so go out and find those cables!!! And do switch it to 16:9 mode.

My brother has been trying to get me to buy an xbox but I don't have a whole lot of time to play these days. I think I'll just try to improve what I've got until the next generation of game systems come out.


Will the component connection in 16:9 mode fill the screen? I've noticed that with the composite connection, whether in 4:3, full, or 16:9, the picture does not fill the screen even with any of the plasma's preset modes (other than zoom). I have to go into settings to stretch the picture. Will a component connection solve this problem?

I have a Panny plasma and, no, it will not fill the screen--you'll have to use the picture adjustment controls on your plasma to stretch it.

I am having similar issues with my PS2 and my Sony 34HS510. I'm running monster component ( www.thetwistergroup.com ) and have the system set to 16X9, now it does put bars across the top and bottom but when I set my TV to "full" it fills the screen and nothing is morphed too bad.
