    Is using USB to hook a PS2 to a TV possible?

    Nope.

    Either way around: PS2 doesn't output sound and video through USB so nothing would be received on the TV HDMI, and no TV will accept picture through a USB socket (it's for loading files not as an AV source)....

    You could always get a AV2HDMI and plug the yellow/red/white into the box which then upscale a and out puts for HDMI: I got one for £9.99 for my DC and N64's.

    I'm just curious to know what is going through your head right now....But where are you gonna find a usb cable that connects to a tv and ps2 at the same time? There is only ever one kind of cable, A to b cable. One for input (A) and one for output (B) Where you TV and ps2 only support input USB cables, so where would anyone get one to even try that. :ph34r:
