      - At first glance, I dont think his device can turn the sonde on and off or adjust the led brightness. Maybe I'm wrong but you would have to really do some serious tinkering to control the transmitter.

      - For sound, the laptop has a built in mic. So you get your video feed from the camera and record your voice to the laptop. Merged together in the video.

      Thats just my guess.

      runs off 110 ac? 12vdc an option?

      how do you record sound? plug in an external mic? is that what the yellow plug going into your box is?

      What-all's in that jumble of wires rubber banded together?

      You want to build me one of these? or prefer to endure my questions as I attempt to duplicate it myself?

          You're a whiner, first the acronyms and now this? Jason came up with a great idea and he needs to protect his interests. We should thank him that he let us see this much. You want help? He got an idea that will save you at least 2k by making your own monitor and you're complaining? Ungrateful.

            guy's not to downgrade what has been discussed. but that little black box is nothing new.

            i've had one since 1996 and it's still works to this day.

            i can turn on and off the transmitter and adjust the led's.

            i have rca out and can run it from 12 volt dc or 120 volt ac.

            all i need to do is connect the rca out to a video capture device and route it through to my laptop.

            or i can easily route it through my hdd cam corder and then directly out to my laptop utilizing the camcorder as both a recording device and a signal converter for the usb to my laptop.

            once again, not downplaying what plumberjr has brought to life, but it's actually been around since i had my very first seesnake.

            have i connected mine to a laptop yet? no. can i? yes without any real issues.

            so, it might be new to most of us, but it's actually old school with a new school twist. the laptop.

            don't ask me to post a photo of it yet as i will wait for the ok. and believe me as i have 2 of them ready to go.

            good job once again plumberjr for actually making/ designing your own.

              Go ahead and post it Rick. They were products we used to sell. I agree as well. Plummber Jr. did a great job putting together the black box. But to be able to transmit the video signal and power the unit isnt anything that you could patent or sell. Seektech (seesnake folks) did it over a decade ago.

                        this is the 1996 version that i used for many years with my own tv/ vcr.

                        i used a wireless mic to add sound to my recordings.


                        this is the one that ridgid had sold for years and i believe stopped in 2001/2002 ?

                          bill, the pictures show the power boxes that supply the power to the seesnake and convert it to an rca out for the t.v./ vcr.

                          these were the ones i used for years until i bought a color video toolcase.

                          of course the toolcase is also discontinued now too

                              What type of connector (Vid In/Vid Out) is this on the back of our SeeSnake monitor?

                              Doesn't look like an RCA to me?

                              Can I just connect Video Out to USB on computer to record?

                              Or am I oversimiplifying things?

                              What do I need?

                              Am I clueless?.....

                                bill that looks like a "bnc" connector.

                                when was the last time you changed the grease on the back of your monitor
