    http://cgi.ebay.com/P33-New-Day-Nigh...QQcmdZViewItem

    is there like anyway to control it in the front end? it just plugs into the lcd though right?

    if my computer goes through vga, and the camera goes through rca, do i just push the button on the monitor to switch inputs?

    yeah, some monitors even have an auto switching feature, where if a 12v is sent to it (say you ptu the car in reverse and you send the reverse lights power to eh screen) it will switch to the camera view, then back again when the 12V goes.

    But yes...if there is not an auto switch there is a button on the monitor (or remote) to switch inputs.

    Does a lilliput have this feature by any chance?

    Your options are Cheesebox, PIC board, or sending the composite signal into the computer and somehow getting the reverse signal detected by the computer also.

    I went with:

    Couple of observations about that camera

    1. CMOS so quality won't be as good as a CCD one.
    2. 30-40 degree angle is pretty narrow, you really need 120 or at a minimum 90.

    but it is cheap.
