Vegas 24.1. Want to add a full-time monitor for our rear-view and (2) side-view cameras. Bought a nice, simple 9" monitor that has four RCA female inputs and can be configured to display one to four cameras at the same time.
Right in front of our steering wheel there is a removable lid where you will find all kinds of stuff, including our video control box. You can see by the picture that the three camera leads come into the control box where it outputs only one video cable to our Axxess head unit display. The only things that (I thought) I needed were three 5-pin to RCA male adapters, one of which is shown in the picture (unattached).
Unfortunately, when I unplug the camera input from the box and plug it in to the adapter and then on to the new monitor, I get nothing. My fear is this: are the cameras picking up their 12V power from this box? And, if that's the case, have I just opened up a can of worms??? I honestly believed it was unplug three cables, plug in three adapters, attach to the new monitor, and poof! Never is, is it?
