    I should try my PS2 will try in the next week or two and report back. IIRC the PS1 mods are for using as a CDP rather than transport?

    Yes, there is a mod to get digital out from the PS1, but I never bothered.

    I don't know why it doesn't work. I mean it's covered in dust so that's spot on. Weird.

    Needless to say it didn’t get dusted before it went back in the cupboard. I did toy with the idea of playing gta but not for very long.

    That was the only reason I got mine. The four games that came with it are still in the shrink-wrap.

    Roy, I plugged in one of my PS1/2 controllers to the PS2 today. Here is a pic of mine.



    I have to say that things did not go too well. The buttons that worked with the PS1, did odd things on the PS2. What I did establish is that nothing happens to the CD until you hear some sort of mystical warbling and thunder style rumblings through your speakers. I assume that this is the start up procedure (the remote control functions don't seem to induce this other wordly experience) I then tried pressing the START button which would start a CD on the PS1......nothing happened. I then tried all of the 4 buttons on the right, Triangle - Square - O and X, I then got some communications from cosmic beings...a sort ethereal (again) Sonar type sound of differing tones. On another occasion I managed to summon up the mystical warbling and floorboard wobbler (yes, again) after which I was just pressing buttons like a demented twat having got totally pissed off with it all. All of a sudden the CD started to play!!!!!

    With the PS1 the four buttons on the back of the controller changed the track and did FF......the Right Hand 2...Top selects next track and the bottom FF. the left is the same but the tracks go backwards. This was the same with the PS2.......progress.

    The SELECT button stops the CD.

    Given the above I would get a remote control and receiver......unless you have given up on life and and you derive immense pleasure out of endless random button pressing.

    Thanks for that. It’s gone back in the cupboard for now.
