    The Monster component cable I picked up with my PS2 bleeds red under the white and red text on GT3. I know it isn't a convergence problem because the original PS2 cable doesn't have the problem. I double checked the convergence just in case. I don't have a problem with DVD's and component video either. The Monster cable looks much better in general besides the problem with red.

    Do you think the Sony component cable would work better, or should I try a Monster S-video cable?

    What TV do you have? For some reason the component input on my 32" wega always makes the screen have a deep red tint to it. You can really tell when the screen fades to black, it's very annoying. This doesn't happen when using the Monster S-vid for the ps2, only with the component output from my Xbox and my Tosh sd-1200.
    I was thinking of getting an ISF calibration but am wondering how much that would cost.

    Ryan, I have the same setup and have not experienced this. Like you, I've had my set properly calibrated as well.

    I finally figured out what was wrong. I had never used my 2nd component input, so I had never adjusted the contrast. The red was just blooming worse than the other colors. Luckily, nothing burned into the screen.
