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.

  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.

    Been reading lots here and have a good idea on the parts list for my own NV DIY but the only thing I'm unsure of is a Monitor preferably about 5 inch with the capability to
    output video to a recorder, in the future.
    Any suggestions??

    Thanks sniper. Are you able to record from that?

    OOps Should have scrolled down the Ebay page and looked at the very detailed description before asking that.
    :rolleyes:
    This one can't so does anyone have a suggestion for a monitor with Video Out capability?

    No, You would have to split the video signal from the camera to a second recorder device.

    btw - you can buy that exact model screen from within the UK for approx. the same money, why wait from HK?

    You won't get a monitor with video out, as Steve said you'll either have to get a splitter or you could buy a recorder with a screen. The choice does depend on your budget but at the cheaper end of the market the Angel Eye and JXD990 are often used but you would have to sort out a mounting system as they don't have the stand that usually comes with the reversing monitor.
    I've just checked and the people I have been buying monitors from aren't (at the moment) offering the 5" model with higher resolution (800x480) screen so I can't suggest anything.
    Often the sellers claim high screen resolutions but at the £10 - £15 price point they are almost 100% certain to be no better than 320x240 which on a 5" screen can look quite poor.

    Thanks Steve, I see what you mean, and I've ordered mine from the UK, it was Sniper that linked the HK buy.

    And thanks Terry, I'll be contacting you shortly for an IR torch to light up my build. LOL

    Great news! It always seems to be a never ending wait when you desperately want to have a play with a new gadget! I find NV a lot of fun and am sure you will be over the moon with it when its complete.

    Don't forget to post pic's of your build when its done! ;)

    In my scopeless build, I used a 5" wireless dvr, also able to use a standard 5" monitor instead.

    Not hijacking this thread, will start a new one for nitty gritty, but basically it's one of the somebloke/gypo's tube, miracle cottage bullet cam with osd, Cosmicar 75mm lens. Runs on two 18650 batteries and geared up with a 2.4ghz transmitter.
    The camera has 8 privacy mask for reticle, fairy easy to adjust. Mounted on sportmatch windage and elevation adjustable, used together with osd adjustment makes it easy to zero.
    transmitter sends the signals to the 5"dvr wirelessly or it can run a 5" standard hd monitor, the Jewell of the crown is the 1.4 apperture on the 75mm lens. Light gathering is awesome, easily 400yards with t20. accurecy is spot on.
