  1. Hi all, does anyone know how to link a PS 2 to a PC monitor and also would my Creative 5.1 speakers work with a PS2, if so, is there any specialy connection I need becuase I dont recall seeing 5 holes on my PS 2 to put the speaker jacks in !!!!!

    You can use a converter to use the PS2 with your monitor. Its about $100 and the picture wont be as good as with the TV. You need an adapter to use your speakers. Some newer speakers come with it. I dont know if you can buy it seperately. Check the PS2 web site.

    Thanks for the info.

    I think ill stick with the TV then if it will be better quality!

    I'll look into the spaker adapter now, cheers.

    Do you know if THIS is what I need to link my 5.1 speakers to my PS 2?

    Its only got 3 holes.... how is it possible to link a 5.1 set-up with only 3 holes?

    Is it for 2.1 only?

    Thats an adapter for hooking up the PS to a stereo system(HiFi). Logitech gives the adapter with their computer speakes but I dont know if anyone sells it seperately. Check Ebay.

    Would a logitech adapter work with Creative 5.1speakers?
