    I believe I have the same box as Panelopy. However, on the top of the box, there is a flat, round antenna, I assume, that has Philips Magnavox written on it, along with an arrow. I am not sure what this box is either, but I think it may be a wireless camera receiver of some sort. I have tried to find information about this item, but it is difficult when I am limited to any information available on the box. I know it is a Philips Magnavox, and it has RX244 on the front panel.

It is a wireless video camera that should have a camera with it.You hook the RCA plugs to your TV or VCR hook a 12v dc power supply to it. Then hook your camera to a power supply and it should work.Make sure you have the reciever and the camera switches on the back the same. The four switches are used with one to four cameras. To use all four they must all be turned on. The round thing on the camera and receiver is an antenna with an arrow on the top. Turn the one on the camera towards the receiver. Hope that answers your question. The camera has a place for a battery or you can use a power supply.

It could possibly be a Voltec RX244 Camera Receiver operating at 2.4GHz. The A could be for the audio and the V for video. All I can gather is the it can switched up to 4 cameras. Other than that everything else would be conjecture on my part. Incidentally, there was also a Magnavox RX244.

This company might or might not be the main distributor. Additionally you can try visual comparison here.

From your post/description, it would also seem that the device/gadget could be reversed engineered and determine features, functions and operations. But that of course would require more than just basic familiarity with electronic components and circuitry.

Would it be possible for you to post pictures of the connectors and the inside PCB?

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
