    As what the title asks, I want to play a Xenogears PSP eboot on my PC monitor. Is it possible and how?
    I have a PSP Phat w/ CFW 4.01 m33.

    Only PSP-2000+ has video-out. No phats can do it. Its built into the hardware, not the firmware

    I think IR SHell does that, I've never tried though.

    You can play psp games on monitor with remote joy. Never got eboots to work. I did this with a 1000.

    Yes, I use RemoteJoyLite and everything usually works although it does slow down the PSP as it has to transfer the data on screen to the CPU.

    If you want EBOOTs to work as well, you need to add the text required to POPS.txt
    As:
    Game.txt = PSP games (ISO and CSO)
    Pops.txt = PSX games (EBOOTs -> Pops(loader))
    Vsh.txt = PSP XMB (Xross Media Bar (Menu))

    Just thought I'd point out that game.txt is actually for eboots. pops.txt is for PSX eboots.

    Tell me more about this Screen Joy. Do you have to have a hacked PSP to use it, or is it just some PC app and you pipe the PSP a/v through the usb jack using that to my screen?

    I have tried this remotejoy and i must say that it slows down the psp, though if you change the CPU speed from 222 to 333 i think that it might fix this issue.
    (Used a Psp 1000 and 3000 for this)

    yeah if you do this its not really that slow unless your playing something really fast paced. You can even play with another game pad!

    But PSP games look like shit on a computer monitor [​IMG]

    did you add the required line to game.txt? You need it in game.txt as well as vsh.txt, and also pops.txt if you want to play psx games

    Isn't it possible to jack it into a vga convertor box of some kind, if you can get one that like has a component cable jack on it the PSP cable can read.

    Psp 2000 and up have a component cable made for then. This Remotejoy is basically a homebrew for the people who got Psp 1000 or the ones who don't want to spend 20 bucks on Av/Component cables for their psp2000/3000.
