All I need to do is drive 2 miles from my apartment and pick up my camera. My schedule has just been insane... so It'll be Thursday before I can make it. I REALLY need to get it though, I've been promising pics for two weeks now.
I think one of the issues I'm having with using an external power, is that some of my devices seem to want their own 12v line. If I pluig my monitor and HD radio to the same 12v line, one of them will stop working. I used a 12v splitter for a bit, but I think that may have been part of the issue.
Honestly, I don't mind. Through all of this, I have learned a lot on some computer subjects I would have never thought about... but I just don't have a lot of wiring and electronic experience. These wiring diagrams just boggle my mind... so learning all of this is good for me. I need to SEE how some other people have these things connected... I think I just get confused when I see the wiring diagrams.
