  1. 1

    Plug in your digital TV and PlayStation 2. Place your digital TV and PlayStation 2 within two feet of a power outlet and then use the power cords to plug in both your digital TV and PlayStation 2.

  2. 2

    Connect the PlayStation 2 A/V cable. Your PS2 should come with a standard PS2 A/V cable that can connect to your TV, but if you want to have a higher quality picture you can use a third-party cable. The highest quality A/V cable you can use is a PS2 component A/V cable. Plug the three-pronged end of your A/V cable into the video input on your digital TV. Then, plug the other end of the cable into the A/V output of your PS2.

  3. 3

    Play a game. To check that your PS2 is set up properly, turn on both your digital TV and PS2. Then, put a game in your PS2, connect a controller and attempt to play a game. If you have connected your PS2 correctly, you should clearly see the video game on your digital TV screen.
