How to connect a PS2 to an old tv Answered

I'm new to Instructables and not sure if i'm posting in the right area. So,i do not mean to irritate anyone. Anyway, i have an old tv with only an antenna jack in the back and wish to connect my PS2 to it. I have tried already using a tv adapter used for the atari and a rca splitter. I connected the video and left sound to one end of the splitter, and plugged the other end into the coaxial plug for the atari. I then screwed the atari adapter to the antenna jack on the tv. I get a distorted image on my tv in bright colors, but no sound. Any ideas or tips on building a converter or adapter would be great.

I am aware that they can be bought many places, i would just like to build my own. I don't need anything spectacular, just decent sound and picture.
