I am not trying to make a fully functional backup camera per the manual. Just looking for simple video. Every display unit on the planet has video input otherwise what good would it be. Hook a camera up to video in and and apply power from the reverse lights wiring and it should work.

I have some video test equipment at work and I should be able to test the ability of the system to accept a display pattern or not. The software just switches inputs to the video and engages the rear sensors.

If in doubt, pull fuse 67 and 79.
