I too have noticed that the battery drains quickly without using a display system. So, Iâ€™m planning to make a display system using the same method described in the DIY instructions.â€œPlugging the cameras in to a display â€¦ DOUBLES your battery lifeâ€
Quick question, what would be the device/tool that allows me to do the job of splicing two videos together onto one screen, if I donâ€™t want to solder anything? Please excuse my lack of knowledge in regards to electronics, but I suppose the reason for going through the trouble to create a device for oneself would be to save money, because I could imagine the device would be expensive if purchased at a store.
But if I were to buy it at a store... again (noob question) -- what would I be looking be looking for? I was thinking this is called a video converter, or diverter. The people at RadioShack/Best Buy donâ€™t know what I am talking about when I try to explain what I need to themâ€”because Iâ€™m not sure what the device is called.
Anyway, if anyone could let me know what I need to look for at the store that would help me out.
Oh and worst comes to worst, if canâ€™t find this, Iâ€™m just going to get two TVs (I know I can get cheap analog ones for free).
After I get this setup my project should be complete.
