Did you know that if you change the component video output mode on the Playstation 2 to something your TV doesn’t support, you’re almost kind of screwed?

It’s not like Windows, where they pop up a message that’s like “If you can see this, click the OK button. If you can’t see this, we’ll revert these changes in 15 seconds.”

I set my PS2 from “Y Cb/Pb Cr/Pr” output to “RGB” output and my TV went black and reported it couldn’t understand the signal it was being given. It didn’t matter if I reset the console, it was now irrevocably set to RGB mode forever and I couldn’t see the settings screen to change it back.

Praise be to Youtube, and specifically to “MrJayCobPL ex Wario369″ who made a walkthrough of the entire Playstation 2 dashboard so I could see how many times I needed to blindly push down on the d-pad before I got back to the Component Video Out setting. 

Just ten years ago, changing that setting would have been catastrophic and would have required a phone call to tech support. This has been your reminder for how both terrible and amazing technology is in our lives.
