    I have a ccd infrared camera directly hooked to the X-700tsv on AV2 line and wired to the power wire of my reverse light. So when I get in reverse gear it automatically comes on and the picture is great cause it's a wide angle. I tried to have Centrafuse detect it then remembered it was not directly hooked to carputer. I am looking @ a usb camera for the front that way I can get Centrafuse to recognize it.

    i remember a day david purpose a solution via parallel port. the hardware part would short two pins of the port with a relay and CF would be able to detect it and switch to reverse camara

    some screens have a secong AV input, hook the power to the samera vire the reverse light (via relay) and the av to the 2nd input. onthe DW700D i think it will atuo switch to that input when it detects a signal.

    as long as you can detect the reverse and send a hotkey, you can tell Centrafuse to switch to CAM, and when you leave reverse go back to Previous section...
