    Video to VGA adapter

    Here is a question about Video to VGA adapter to switch between PC and Camera. I would like some opinion about this setup.

    My thinking is,
    1) Use something like this video to VGA adapter to connect PC and CCTV Camera.
    2) The camera would be powered from the power wire that is activated when car is reversed.
    3) Also the source selector switch is somehow connected to the gear shifter (I couldn't think of the propter name) so that camera is only switched when gear is in reverse.

    Could this setup work? Basically I want my PC to display and rearview camera to come on when I shift to reverse.

    Any comments would be good. Thanks guys.

    Yeah, looks like it would work good. I can't tell much about that switch from the pic. If you replace that switch with a relay, It would be simple.

    I really don't know a lot about relay, can you tell me what I need? or direct me to some like where I can learn?

    Thanks for the comment

    I'm using the Via eden 5000 board it has they ability to do VGA or video out. Is there a way to do both at the same time? I would like to record the NTSC PC signal from the PC back to a four input video card. I have onboard cameras an I would like to be able to record the gps on the display, to show where I was when I recorded the camera video.
