    help with xbox/backup camera to my Lilliput lcd

    Hi all,

    Before i go on i am installing this in my buddy's dodge avenger. He bought the screen from a member on here and on 2gnt, its a nice 8" Lilliput monitor allready molded into the console(just needs some touching up).


    But here is what we are trying to do, before we install a pc in it we would like to hook up a an xbox and a backup camera.

    The xbox i have a really good idea on how to hook it up (but i am not sure on the cable). The one i got comes off of the usb port on the monitor and splits into a rca style but has an extra wire on it(not sure what it is for) but i get no pic from it if i hook it up that way, me thinks the extra wire is the key. I cause i can get a pic if i use the coaxial/tv hook up but the pic is low quality.

    Know the one i am really stumped on is the back up camera i am not sure on the brand but it has 3 wires 2 that look like video and one that looks to be a power wire(all three look like rca cables though).


    the monitor model i am not sure of and the camera model and make i have no idea. Any help though would be nice....

    o and my inputs on this monitor is a vga, usb, coaxial/antenna

    thanks,
    kevin

    Hey Kevin, I think some pictures might be necessary to help with this. I'm having a hard time following the description here. I'm sure many here would love to help as would I.

    just spit ballin here but....the camera looks like 1 video and L/R audio (Looks Like RCA Cables 2 me 2 :-P) so you could posib. get away w/o the audio less u must hav it. And since ur gonna have what...camera/xbox/pc (right??) if im not totally wrong i think theres only 1 component/rca jack 1 audio OUT jack and 1 VGA in. Would appear 2 me that an oldfashoned $10 switchbox from radioshak (or another video source - rearview may b) would do the trick nicely; but then u gotta find somewhere 2 hide it 2. though if u went thru w/ a switchbox then u wouldnt have 2 struggle w/ audio from xbox/pc/camera - though im SURE theres a more elegant solution

    most backup cams have a black barrel connector for power/ground and a yellow RCA connector for video. camera models that have a built-in microphone may have another RCA output for audio.

    your camera's outputs are probably:
    BLACK = power/ground
    YELLOW = composite video
    RED = audio (mono)

    no RCA/composite video input? in your first post you said: "The one i got comes off of the usb port on the monitor and splits into a rca style but has an extra wire on it(not sure what it is for) but i get no pic from it if i hook it up that way, me thinks the extra wire is the key". is the "extra wire" a single wire or is it a connector? maybe it's a reverse sensor wire to auto-switch the input?

    there is no model number written on the monitor?

    cool thats what i needed to know, though as far as having it automatically switch to the camera view when in revers do i need to do anything special

    Nope the back has no stickers or numbers and i have yet to hear back from the guy that i bought it from.

    Yea there is no rca inputs on the screen itself but there is that usb looking wire here is a pic of it.....

    Hi, Kevin
    what is the model of your lilliput?
    My 619GL-70NP/C have a similar cable and the pin colours cable are:
    red= composite1
    white=composite2
    yellow= audio in.
    the other pin as a power supply or specular image for rear camera
