alright, I just checked the colecovision emulator. emulator boots up fine, video works. it must be the emulator then. it must be using a lower resolution for some reason. whenever u boot an emulator or other homebrew, it displays the matrix infinity logo instead of the ps2/psx one, so it may not be considered for the ps2 by the system. edit: btw, I found the other wonderstation emulator disc. it has the same issue. it worked on my old tv, but there's no video on the new one.
