Another problem; the UK version has a scheme where if u play a DVD via SCART it all goes greensih, blue and red are blocked. Any one know a way around this or any other information conserning that ?

think thats macrovision ?..

If you’re hooking you PS2 up to your video, you could get this because of indeed macrovision. Try to connect it directly to your tv. And it should work ok

um… the whole point of conecting it thru SCART is so that you have better picture quality, its sharper along with better colours - ull see the diffrence if u use it.

Oh well… acording to SONY its to stop piracy of DVD ?

if you want a modchip for a usa ps2 you can get on at it a cartrige you don’t need to do any sodering

I hope a new one also comes for the JAP model 1000/1500
