LCD w/ PS2

how hard is it to wire up a stand alone LCD screen and a PS2 into a focus....am thinking about getting 2 of the recaro headrests front a wrecked car and putting LCD's in them and hooking the PS2 to it for roadtrips, get-to-gathers etc... just wondering if its as easy as I imagine it being aside from putting the screens in the headrests....in my mind it shoudl wire-up just like a new headunit right? let me know =) thanks

it's very simple! All you'll need is screens, PS2, power inverter (300 watts or higher), RCA patch cords(red and white) for audio, and a "Y" adaptor(to send one video source in this case your PS2, to two monitors).
Hope that helps.

just dont put a screen on your dash and play while your driving down the road please.... lol

i havent seen that yet, but i have seen several people here watching something on screens in the front seat why they are driving. it always scares the crap out of me.

you might also want to think about hooking it up so you can interchange your PS2 and a DVD player, so that you can use one or the other as the situation fits. like put a dvd player under one seat, and a ps2 under the other, and just swtich the wires around depending on what you wanna do. just an idea, if i was rolling in the dough and actually ever had ppl in the back seat, i would probably do that.

yes it does function as both, in theory. i have heard rumors (i do not know if they are true or not) that running dvds in some ps2s can damage the laser. please correct me if i am wrong, but that is the rumor i have heard.

i highly doubt that. considering most all of the ps2 games are dvd's, i dont know how playing them can ruin the laser. maybe if you have a dvd or game running while driving, that might screw something up if you hit a bump or something. thats why if you put one in your car, try not to use it while driving

I would put both in just to show off...this has nothing to do with a focus but.....the thing that damages a ps2 the most is when u shut it off in the back without first holding in the green button until it goes red......I work at wal mart and we have had MANY! returned b/c of that and its not warranted b/c the manual tells you to do it the way i said above.
