    If I read that original eBay reference correctly, it says it includes RCA to BNC adaptors. I personally wouldn't buy it since I don't like adapting things down, if I can help it. But still...

    there is no real signal loss - and 90% of security cameras use BNC
    connectors - I am using the card, its nice - no hardware compresion
    but the software does a good job

    yep thats the card

    The software works well - but its not made for everyone,
    there are lots of options and settings - with little explanation
    of what they do - Still, I would rather have more options than
    easer to use - the driver / software CD you get is a CDr with
    a label on it - the setup asks what to install - you have to
    guess - the CD seams to be made for all the stuff they sell,
    I picked one that was similar to the name of the card
    on ebay - it worked - then the software is in Chinese or
    Japanese until you install a patch to change the language -
    my guess the setup was made to do that, but did not for me.
    Its called "English Pak.EXE" in the CDs root

    The software allows you to watch 4 cameras at the
    same time - or how ever many you want, you start
    recording by pressing the number of the camera

    you can set the FPS of the recording from 30 down to
    1 frame per 60 seconds - even lets you use it over a
    network - watch the camera at home from work kind
    of stuff - also lets you set up timer recordings

    I may even use one in my car

    here is a screen shot

    Pretty darn good clarity and more than enough challenge for those of us glutton for punishment where installations are concerned. I'm sold. Just bought one in 4 clicks.

    This change came about after transporting the bike for about 100 miles last week. Though it was tied down securely, there were a few major jolts to the van on some poorly maintained back roads. I didn't discover how much the bike had shifted in its harness until after getting it home. A few more jolts like I had and it would have slipped free, causing only the gods know how much damage internally. Getting a visual upfront what is happening way in the back would be beneficial.
    I did see Monster Garage show on tv that had a truck and bike
    - there was a tray that slid out the side to launch the bike

    I care. It's mine and not only did it cost more than the van I am housing it in, but probably most of the individual vehicles talked about on this forum.



    Thats what alarms are for.

    Yeah, well CD players are for music, asking directions and using a map are for navigation, theaters and home DVD players are for movies, arcades are for games, and mechanics are for engine diagnostics. None of those things require a computer in your car, yet here we are on a forum where that is the primary discussion.


    Maybe you are just jealous, maybe you don't have the knowledge or money to do even half of what I am doing, or maybe you simply have the inflated ego to suggest to a grown man what he should not do with his hobby. Whatever the reason for your rudeness, know that I simply couldn't care less. I don't see the point for many of the modifications and alterations talked about on this forum, but I wouldn't dream of trying to convince someone to do or not do any of them. If you have a constructive suggestion for how I can accomplish my stated goals and wish to make that suggestion with the same politeness and respect I have shown thus far, by all means please post. If not, I suggest you add me to your ignore list.

    Express van rear camera

    Ragle, I like what you have done to your van. I have two small kids and am thinking about some type of rear camera system to see behind my van for safety reasons. I have also made many modifications to my 2003 Express van. Roof rack, custom bumpers, Rock sliders, Etc.
    They are detailed at:

    If you would like to see.

    Bill
