I am planning on installing an Alpine IVA-C800 unit into my 2000 Silverado. My main reason for installing it is because I would love to watch DVDs. I already know my console is large enough to custom fit a Playstation 2 because I found someone who's already done it.
Here's my main question. Are you able to play your DVDs on the Playstation 2 and watch them thru the Alpine monitor? The reason why I'm asking this is because I've found many people who have both a PS2 and an Alpine DVD player installed (DVA 5200 for example). If the DVDs play fine on PS2, then I think it's a real waste of money to buy a whole other DVD player. I've noticed that used PS2's can cost a little under a $100, while an Alpine DVD player can easily be $200 used. That's why I wanna set up my system like this. Does my idea sound good? Please reply with comments or suggestions. Thanks
