Like the other reviewers said, you must go into the System Configuration and change your output settings for it to work, so do that using your standard AV cable before you plug this in. Overall, the product is good, especially for the price I paid. It's not like it upscales to HD quality, but I wouldn't expect it to because the PS2 isn't capable of it. It makes the image sharper and a lot more bearable, at least on my TV. If I'd have paid about £10 like most others are priced, I may have been slightly disappointed, but I really cannot argue, I am satisfied with it.
