Turning ps2 on with remote
Turning ps2 on with remote –
does anyone know if its possible to turn on the ps2 with a remote.
i have a v4.
i want to be able to turn it on, reset it, turn it off.
this has to be possible but cant get it working.
not without installing ur own infared device which switches the reset button. To tun on and of normally u need a v9+
OMFG! I've heard it all now! Talk about being lazy!
Just get up off your fat ass, lean over & switch it on!
Next you'll be wanting the PS2 to play the games for you too, to save you getting finger cramp!

possible with xbox! i hope there is a ps2 possibility
like i said. its the challenge of doing it and doing it successfully. lets encourage him guys, not bash him.
i want to do something similiar with my xbox v1. Its only used a media centre and would like to turn it on and off just like any other piece of equipment. i know you can buy an addon to do it but i'm busy building one from scratch. should be the same for the ps2 - with a add on IR detector and a PIC wired to the power it should be easily do-able.
for u 2 jerks that cant say antying nice. STFU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
for your info i am trying to help someone who is bed ridden right now.
running the cord across the room is too difficult with pets.
and the challenge is another thing.
you can use this for an xbox "cheaplpc.com/xir/default.asp"
but i wouild like to be able to do it with ps2.
with my xbox i have a 300 gig hd and filled with games and stuff and its nice to turn it on select what i want and reset with remote switching games.
i have v4 and i tried a dvd remote kit but that didnt work either.
i have my ps2 with a 300 gig drive setup full of games but cant reset like xbox.
thanks for any help.
ps: does anyone have good component switcher in mind?
i was looking at joytech
just get the old PS2 remote. Until V9 PS2's the remote came with a receiver that plugged into a mem card port.
your best bet if the on/off/eject remote is really important too you, just get a V9
I must say it is very convenient using the remote to reset the unit while using HDL
i have the old ps2 remote with the reciever for mem car port
but its not working
and i already have a good working v4 setup.
thanks for the replys
