Do they have to be TV's? If they're for a PSII then could you just buy a monitor?

I wondered that, but don't know enough about PS2's.

Certainly the cables we have only have SCART sockets on the end.

Perhaps somebody who knows can comment.

To use it with a monitor you'd need either a VGA or DVI output from the PS2 which I don't think they support

Or you could buy a little box to convert the output from the PS2 to VGA for the monitor. I picked one of these up on ebay for about 20.

So

The second PS2 and 21' LCD are now in place.

Unfortunately the LCD has arrived minus its 12V 7A power supply

Anyone know where I can get one quickly at a reasonable cost?
Its the barrel type with a centre +ve pin, NOT the 4-pin type.

Ta

Yes you have one in your car and your boat!!!

Seriously though that is quite a hefty amperage - would be quite expensive in Maplin etc I would have thought.

I have used a car battery for things like this many times - assuming it's DC of course!!!

I thought that.

It is actualy only 6.6A, printed on the back.

DC 12 6.6A.

They are available on ebay for @15 but I wanted it for this weekend.

Hadn't thought of Maplin, will have a look on line.

Edit
Just checked - They only do a 5A one, and thats 35.

What I need is one of these but locally.

Nasher I am serious about the car battery - it's a very smooth supply.

You could use a connector from a much cheaper power pack - one of the universal ones. I would and have!!! I also use a booster pack as they are handier but don't last as long before they need charging - have even powered hard disks this way!!!
