PlayStation Adapter (for use with the Genesis YPbPr Component Cable)

NOTE:  THIS PAGE IS A WORK-IN-PROGRESS AND IS CONSTANTLY BEING UPDATED.

The HD Retrovision YPbPr train is finally pulling into the PlayStation. Coupled with our freight engine (the Genesis YPbPr Component Cable), the PlayStation adapter will take your console on a cross-country journey to Clarity Town, USA. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the experience on an HDTV that supports 240p, or on a standard-definition CRT for that classic look.

The following chart contains a list of tested and confirmed console models which have been verified to work with the PlayStation adapter. The intent of this list is to give a general idea of what types of consoles can work with the adapter, and is not exhaustive. Therefore, we expect the adapter to work with even more models and console types than what is listed, but we are unable to explicitly put them in the list unless functionality is directly confirmed by us.

* Although the PlayStation adapter will work with PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 consoles, RGB/SCART output needs to be enabled in the system menu and even then it can only operate properly in the standard definition video modes (240p/288p/480i/576i). Additionally, the built-in DVD/Blu-ray Player application in these consoles is restricted from using RGB/SCART mode, so DVD/Blu-ray playback won't display properly when set to this mode. If this missing functionality is important to you, we recommend waiting for our PS2/PS3 YPbPr cable which is currently in development.

These models have standby power while plugged in, regardless if the console is powered on or off. This standby power keeps the audio mute circuit activated on the audio outputs. Therefore, using these consoles with the Y-adapter input splitting method described on this page (under "YPbPr Component Switchbox Alternatives") will cause a severe reduction in audio volume with whatever else is connected together with the PlayStation console. The only way around this is to remove the AC power input from the PlayStation when not in use by either turning off the rear power switch (if available), unplugging the AC cord, or turning off the power switch on a connected surge-protector / power-strip.
