    you will need the component set (5 rca-ended cables [red,green,blue,red,white]) in order to view games on your television (and of course a television that supports component input).

    the s-video set will allow you to view umd movies and display photos, but will not transfer the game signal to the television.

    this was a poor decision in my opinion and what that is not clearly spelled out on the packaging for the cables.

    That is completely lame... Just another way for Sony to milk you... buy aftermarket so you won't help Fony make more money on useless crap...

    As was stated, you need the component cable. If you own a slim with CFW, you can use a homebrew called FuSa (google it) to play games over the composite / s-video cables.

    Honestly, though, the whole thing is a pain in the ass. The cable is too short. If you own a large screen TV, you have to stand in front of the TV in order for the stock component cable to reach.

    A better solution is to play your PSP using RemoteJoy. A good build of that plug in is included in the Custom Firmware Extender v2.2 (CFE, google it). This lets you beam your PSP screen to your PC using a USB connection. It also lets you hook up a joystick to your PC and use it to control the PSP.

    I'd never used remotejoy before. I just got it working on my slim with M33 3.90-3 using this guide. Very cool app.

    I don't recommend the stand-alone versions of RemoteJoy (RJ). It has a bug that causes the PSP to freeze up if the PSP tries to access save data while video is enabled in RJ.

    The versions of RJ included in CFE 2.2 and IRShell do not have this limitation.

    CFE 2.2 RJ does not work with Valkyrie Pofile: Lenneth, but I have had it work with other games like flOw, Disgaea, and Ace Combat.
