Default Video out also video in?

I bought a 6600gt that came with this cable:

Its designed to out to an HDTV. Is there any way I can use it as a video in so i can play a ps2 or something on my pc monitor? Is that even possible to do through a video card? if so what cables do i need?

You would need a TV Tuner. I'm happy with my V-Stream tuner that I got from newegg. No lag between video and sound - great card, and I love playing my PS2 on my 19" LCD.
