Hi I am new to here, and I would like to know if it is at all possible to connect my PS2 to an iBook, negating the need for a TV. Thanks.

For that kind of connectivity you'd need some kind of video-in convertor. AFAIK something like EyeTV from ElGato or Studio from Formac. Unfortunately both solutions because they are external and they way the transmit the video introduce about a 3 second delay between source and screen. Fine for watching TV but difficult when you press a button and the action doesn't occur for 3 seconds more. You might be able to find some higher-end live products but then you are really wasting your money. I'd just find a smallish TV and go with that. It'll be much cheaper.
