1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    When I saw this 390632613026 I immediately thought with the power, screen and camera in a package I would be able to make something with it but now I have it I don't know! Lol obviously didn't spend much money so it's not a problem but it would be nice if we could make it work! Making something to attach it to the scope won't be a problem as I have access to plumbing equipment!

    It's cheap as chips so well worth a try!

    My limited experience suggests that you may find the screen a bit low quality to use effectively? We have a very decent Car DVR item no 231143728258 if anyone's interested, and the footage is very very good in daylight when viewed on the PC, but the tiny screen is only really enough to allow you to get the screen angle correct.

    Your unit probably has some form of ir filter on it, and if you could remove it then it would improve the night time footage further.
    The illumination is likely to be pretty weak, one of Terry1001's torches would give you some benchmark illumination to make an assessment from.

    No harm at all in tinkering with stuff, be great to see what results you might get?

    You're going to struggle to get that to work very well. They come with a very wide angle lens which would need to be changed and you would also need to disable the ir lighting. I think it would be a lot of work to end up with a poor result, sorry.
    The easiest way to start is to use a 1/3" sensor board camera with a 16mm lens and one of the 3.5" monitors which won't cost much and as you have the plumbing fittings it will be simple to hook up to the scope. There has been information on batteries in threads recently which would be worth looking at.
    If this car dvr has an input for composite video (a phono plug) you may be able to use it as a recorder and a screen but I'm not certain that will be possible.
    The poorer the camera performance the more ir light you will need so it's worth getting a reasonable camera.
