OK chaps, can one of you knowledgeable guys help me out with one minor issue.
Camera is installed in the number plate light location and fits perfectly, check, power wire to the inbuilt camera LED is spliced into the number plate light wire, check, power wire from the camera is spliced into the reverse light harness, check.

Plugged the supplied video RCA cable into the camera which is then plugged into the reversing camera cable at the back of the Dynavin, check, tested the camera and picture on the Dynavin screen is good, check, however I can only get the picture to come on by manually pressing the camera icon on the Dynavin main screen, it doesn't trigger automatically when I put the car in reverse which I thought by splicing the camera's power wire into the reverse light wiring was supposed to do.
So I have missed something but have no idea what it is.
