PS2 to view DV via firewire?

Has anyone ever experimented with a Playstation2, to see if you could view your DV via firewire?

In other words:

DV -> PS2 -> TV

I would go firewire to the PS2, and component from the PS2.

The reason I need this is because I am out of component inputs on my system, and I do not have a firewire input on my TV.

Thanks,

David

I've got a cousin who bought a $20 composite video game switcher and is using it as a component video swithcer. Just match the red, white, and yellow composite connectors with red, green, and blue of your component cables.

Click here to see the one I'm referring to

I also checked eBay and there are a ton of low cost component video selectors under $50.

btw - are you running a HDV cam?

Tommy,

I know that there are plenty of switchers out there, but I figured that if this worked, it would be an elegant solution.

Yes, I am running HDV - Sony FX1 camcorder.
