Question about Car Audio & Video
A friend gave me a Astak CM-918T surveillance camera and a wireless receiver with no hardware at all. Just camera and receiver that's it. The camera does not say wireless anywhere on it but it does have a mini ant connector on the back. There 4 wires hanging out the back of the camera which are Black, Red, White and Yellow. The camera is 12v. So I was wondering if I connected the red + black wires to a 12v power pack and the yellow and white wires to a RCA video cable will that make the camera operational? I'm not sure if this will help but the receiver is a Astak CM-919 DC8V 0.9 GHz.

red = 12 volts switched (ignition)
yellow = 12 volts constant
black = ground
blue = power antenna
blue/ white = amp turn on
purples = right rear
grays = right front
greens = left rear
whites = right front
black striped speaker wires are negative side

I figured it out:
Here goes: There are 4 wires inside the Aqua Vu cable that runs to the underwater part of the cam.
Red = Hot or 12 volt power from battery postive (red) terminal
Black = Ground - ground to battery negative terminal
White= Video input (or center of video coax)
Green= Infrared lighting control, if you ground the green wire against the black/ground, you will see
that it switches ON the infrared or "Christmas" lights. Simply put a switch on the green wire after you ground it, so you can switch your IR's on and off.
