    Turn your PS2 into a Home Entertainment Hub

    Do you have a large collection of DVD's or DivX movies in your cupboard, but don't know how to play them independently without a desktop PC or don't want to connect your PC to TV via TV-out for obvious reasons or Do you have a Playstation 2 but don't know how to make an optimum use of your investment? In 10 mins you will learn how you can convert your same old PS2 into a Home Entertainment HUB.

    Turn your PS2 into a Home Entertainment HUB


    Do you have a large collection of DVD's or DivX movies in your cub board, but don't know how to play them independently without a desktop PC or don't want to connect your PC to TV via TV-out for obvious reasons or Do you have a Playstation 2 but don't know how to make an optimum use of your investment? In 10 mins you will learn how you can convert your same old PS2 into a Home Entertainment HUB. DVD burners and DVD-Rom's becoming cheaper day-by-day, its really convenient to backup all your movies into DVD's or backup your mini library into compress Xvid or DivX file format. You can store as-many-as six movies into one DVD in Xvid format. Of course you can opt for new DivX players available in market, but wait, are these players good enough? I don't think so.

    Why should one opt for PS2 rather than some media player? One, you can play cool PS2 games, all the neighboring kids will envy you and befriend you. Two, you can play DVD's, CD's. Three, you can play DivX and Xvid file format movies. Four, you can listen to all those MP3's that you have collected since 1972. Five, you can play all the movies from USB hard-disk.

    Disclaimer! Ensure that you legally own the original movies which you backup in DivX or Xvid formats. I take no responsibility for any damage to your property. Take your own risk.

    Step 1:
    You Need

    Hardware:

    1. Playstation 2
    2. Blank CD
    3. USB Hard Disk (Optional)
    Software
    1. CD Gen PS2
    2. SMS Player
    Step 2:
    SMS is a DivX and MP3 player for the PS2.

    Using SMS, you can stream movies and music right to your TV. forget about all the set-top boxes, forget about the 'Media PC', if you have a PS2, you have all the hardware you need.

    Features of SMS include:

    • Smooth DivX AVI Playback at decent resolution
    • Pan/Scan and zooming
    • Subtitles support (SRT and SUB)
    • Visual seek (Fast Forward and Rewind)
    • Multiple language and character set support for subtitles other than English
    • MP3 Playback
    • AC3 Surround Support
    • Full resolution
    • Multilanguage
    • Copy your movies and mp3's to your internal HDD!

    SMS will read video files from a variety of sources:

    • Network Streaming
    • USB Drives
    • Hard Drives (both the Official Sony HDD and any normal PC HDD)
    • CD/DVD-ROM (and NO modchip required!)

    SMS can even read DVD-RW discs specially formatted with the DVD-Video filesystem, or CD-R Discs formatted with CDDAFS without needing a modchip or any Swap tricks.

    Download SMS Player.

    Download CDGenPS2.

    Download USB.irx file which is part of Naplink.

    Download the SYSTEM.cnf file.

    Note: There are other Media players for PS2, But I chose SMS because I find it most efficient.

    Step 3:

    Extract the CDGenPS2 zip file to any location on your drive. Launch the CDGenPS2 exe file.

    Drag all the files in the application which you have download (i.e SMS.elf, USB.irx, System.cnf)

    Right click on "System.cnf" and click "Edit", check "Fix LBA", type 12231 in LBA "text box"

    Click File->Create CD then Save

    Voila! Burn to a CD (not DVD) using any of your favourite CD-Writer software.

    Step 4:

    Place the newly created CD into your PS2. Power On.

    After the SMS player loads up. Replace the CD, with any DVD or CD which contains the DivX / Xvid or MP3's, just browse and play the files.

    If you want, I have created a CD-Image for you. Download SMS Player CD-Image Zip, extract it, then burn it to your CD.

    Adios!

    This one worked like a piece of cake. All I have to do is to burn the image to a CD and boot my PS2 with it. The SMS player got initiated and I replaced the CD with my the Divix movie disk..The clarity and sound were fantastic. I also tried other ways to do it (browse the internet and you get lots of options) and also succeeded but probably the first one was far more easy. Thanks to you buddy! :)

    How exactly do you burn this to a cd? I tried about four times using different software and it didn't work, instead it said to enter a playstation or playstation 2 disk.

     
    At 11/07/2006 4:46 PM, Blogger The Tech Oracle said...

    Aj, Did you extract the image from the Zip file and then try to burn it?

    Which software are you using to burn your CD's?

    Are you sure you are burning it on CD and not DVD?

    Please provide me more information so that I can help you.

    work in ps2 without chip?

     
    At 11/07/2006 7:15 PM, Blogger aj said...

    I extracted it from the zip file and saved the bin and cue to my desktop. Then, first i used cdwrin, then alcohol 120%, then cdburner xp pro 3. I had selected the choice to burn the image to disk, and it burned it(It only asked for the cue file). When i placed the disk in my ps2, it didn't read it-just said to replace with a ps2 disk (you know that red screen). BTW this it was a cd, because i only have a cd burner on my desktop.

    Sorry i'm a noob at cd burning.

     
    At 11/08/2006 8:33 PM, Blogger The Tech Oracle said...

    AJ -> Why don't you try NERO, it should work.
    If you try it with nero, you can rename the BIN file to .NRG and burn the .NRG file, it should work.

    Miguel -> Yeah it should work on any PS2.

    um.....heh trial period is over for me....is there any other program??

    At 11/09/2006 6:12 PM, Blogger The Tech Oracle said...

    Yeah, there is Reality Player Pro, but its not in development anymore.. and not that great, sometimes the movies just jitter or hang.

    anyways Try your luck..

    At 11/10/2006 11:07 AM, Blogger The Tech Oracle said...

    You need to be able to boot "backup" games to make this work. The CD WILL NOT BOOT on an unmodded PS2, unless you use swap-magic or similar. If you have a modchip it will work fine.
    SMS is updated regularly, check:
    http://sms.ps2-scene.org/eng/index.htm
    Support for mpg 1/2 is coming soon!

     
    At 11/17/2006 1:30 PM, Blogger The Tech Oracle said...

    Very true, t-bon

    Important

    To use SMS on your Playstation, you will need to already have a working method to run arbitrary ELF files from your PS2 memory card. Normal PS2s can't do this. SMS is not an exploit to run ELF files, it needs an exploit or modchip to run. You can't just burn the SMS.ELF file to CD as the PS2 copy protection system will stop you from running it. Please also note that the CDXplorer CD-R method is not a method of starting SMS either. Rather it is a way of supplying media files to SMS once SMS is already running.

    I will be comming up with a tutorial of how to do this, till then keep gammin.

    ok means you dragged both the files on a new compilation and burnt it?

    well that is the wrong way to do..

    what you can do is rename imagen.bin as imagen.NRG

    dont drag it on new compilation.. just click OPEN AN EXISTING COMPILATION.. den click the imagefile..

    you can rename the file via dos prompt.. or

    go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View

    den uncheck the HIDE KNOWN FILE EXTENTIONS..

    den you can rename the files from explorer.. or you have to do it from DOS..

    for that you have to go to dos prompt..

    Hello Vikrant,

    If it dosnt work, you must not be burning it properly or your player cannot play elf files.. it can be either, and yes its just a waste of money so please dont burn any more CD's. I had to waste lot of CD's to test this stuff.

    But it does work, worked for me, worked for others, for some it dint work. I think its unfortunate it dint work for you.

    Finally, I am sorry for late reply, as I am buzy with other research.

    Dood Vikrant,

    You can play plain DVD's directly with PS2, you dont need SMS player, just insert the DVD and press the power button for few seconds untill the screen appears.. try it..

    SMS player is for playing DivX movies, hope this helps

It burnt the files and when I check whats on the disc it says :SMS.ELF, SYSTEM and USBD. IRX.

    HI. I've just worked out why it doesn't work. I 'm burning it to CD and then trying to start it with Swap magic DVD version (which can only start programs from a DVD) i was wondering if you can tell me how i could burn the .ZIP file you provided on to a DVD.

     
    At 12/26/2006 10:54 PM, Blogger bharat0 said...

    OK. I've burnt it to DVD (Using ISO Buster) and it works :). The only problem is that wen i change the disc for one containing the videos (which are in .avi format)it takes a long time to load 9 around 5 minutes) wen it eventually does load, i get an error message saying "Illegal Disk"

    Yo, i have a silver slim ps2, no mod chips, no swap magic, no code breaker, nothing to use to run backups. So with all that said, is there a way for me to get this thing to boot up on my ps2 without having to waste money on any of the above?

    I have read that you don't need a mod chip in your PS2 to run SMS. It's called the Independence Exploit. I don't think it can run on newer PS2s but it runs off of your memory card. If anyone knows what I am talking about, please put up a link to their max drive save (I would guess that you could make a max drive save of the prog)! Thanks a ton

    Hi,

    I have a SCPH-90004 PS2 and it refuses to recognize the CDs i've cut. It displays something like "please use a Playstation or Playstation 2 disk"

    I've followed the steps you listed as well as tried the CD image. I've used Nero to write the disks and i have tried writting it at lower speeds as well, but it still does not work.

    Is there anything else that i need to do? Is there any other software that i need or does the console need to be modified?

    PowerISO is the way to burn that nasty .bin file
    I put the SMS CD, turn on the PS2, SMS activates but when I put the DVD with Divx files on it , it says "Illegal disc (press "cross" to continue)..."

    hey man, if i make a cd with only the SMS and auxiliary files, but no videos, if i replace the disc with another one that's got avi's on it, the SMS will say "illegal disk". It does that to every disk i put in. Please help!!

    WELL I MADE THE CD and it runs the sms player but when i insert any dvd with avi or divx files , it gives a message of illega disk , what can i do about that ?

    haha i m a genius , i figured a way out and i tested it too , all i needed to do was make the dvd a video dvd and then copy the divx files onto it rather than making a data disk , i took a very small file 1 mb avi and then made a dvd video iso file of that and then modified that iso with my divx files and then finally burnt it and it works no more errors no modded ps2 and i m enjoying high quality divx videos on my ps2

    Many reputable websites selling PS2 Modchip also offer pre installed systems for sale. This may be the route you'd like to take after reading these tips. After all, a Pre Modded PS2 is certainly a plug and play solution.

    Installing a PS2 Modchip into your Playstation 2 has always seemed like a daunting task. This was especially true of the older generation of Playstation 2 machines, where many of the solder points were directly on the main bios chip of the PS2. But as PS2 Mod Chip manufacturers developed newer and newer versions of PS2 Mod chips, they realized that while features and functions are an important selling feature of ps2 chips, it is also equally important to offer a PS2 Mod Chip that is easy to install.
