  • anyone use CASKA??

    just got a motorised in DIN monitor - is super cool but the onlywireconnection on the backthat irecogniseis the RCA "AV in" and the only RCA output from my puter is TV out which as i have just discovered is why im getting a fuzzy picture.

    the socket looks a bit like the old (pre PS2) keyboard sockets - can any one iodentify a seriel -> dodgy wierd socket cable or at least identify the socket??

    Many thanks!!

    the computer has the socket your trying to identify??
    or the monitor? if its the computer and it has 4 or 7 pins it could be svideo or an svideo/rca combination

    any chance of a pic?

    cheers

                  the standard cableto plug a standard monitor into a standard PC!

                  surely this is where the best quality pic is?

                  so can i get a cable to plug in to the monitor socket on PC - instead of RCA TV out (which is prob giving me blrry signal)that will go into Caska??

                    all good i get you now..
                    no i dont think u can.. that plug just has 2 wires for the video signal and 2 wires to power the camera.. i dont think the others are used..

                          confirmed with manufacter you are 100% correct other cables are not used and res is not enough for PC,

                          do you use yours powered by PC?? if so is the pic good?

                          Thanksfor all your help mate

                            Mate i nearly bought a caska too with the intention of using the TV OUT (RCA) connection that comes out of my EPIA TV out on my motherboard but like you said the picture quality is crap! a few people on here will tell you the same thing DONT! use tv out even the best tv out chipsets such as the Mobil Radeon by ATI that give crystal clear tv out signals are **** for CAR PC uses the text will look blurry the refresh rate will be annoying the gps information will be too distorted to see! its all too much bother if i had gone through with the caska purchase the one that looks super cool with the blue backlite or the new on with the tv etc i wouldve ended up buying a lilliput rippling the lcd from it and trying to graft it into the caska housing.

                            as for the connections you refrering too the PS2 in commonly known as a mini din the PS2 part is purely for the mouse only! not the keyboard alough they look the same.
                            the older type was just a din plug as for how many pins count them!! on the caska like the others have said proberly that socket is for a rear view camera or something not for vga, vga is a 15 pin D Type connection that carries clock pulse (Sync) Red Green & Blue data plus numerous GNDS and other signals i doubt you could wire that to the DIN plug your referring too hope this helps!
