I have a problem with NTSC PSX games on my modded PS2.
PAL PS2 v14
XenoPS modchip with Infinity 1.83 Bios
PAL 21' LCD TV
connected with original Sony cables
right off the bat: yes, my TV supports NTSC video signal. I can play my PS2 NTSC imports as well as my xbox NTSC imports in full color.
If However I want to play an NTSC PSX game (Legend of Mana, Star Ocean 2), the game starts in black and white only (plus the picture is a bit wavy). In the infinity menu, PSX screen fix is turned on. If I turn it off, the NTSC games start in color, but are totaly off center (lower third of the screen is black, upper third of game image missing (lost in space). So I either can play in Black/white, or with the image way off center.
Is there any way to play the games centered and in color? Might it have to do with the cable used? I think i remember myself having played Legend of Mana centered and in color before, but I used a different cable. A third party one, which didn't split into red/white/yellow first, but was directly cennecting to SCART. But I can't get hold of this cable for another 2.5 weeks, so I can't test it. Plus I am not even sure if I ran it in full color on the PS2 or if I emulated it on my Xbox.
any help/input would be appreciated
