AV input won't work?

Hi Guys, Hoping someone can help me here. I'm trying to get the AV input working on my TV module. I've already wired in a reverse camera without issue - the picture is great however I can't get any picture from the AV input.
I'm using the following pins to connect with:



Sound is working perfectly however I'm just getting distorted static for video (the blue is the settings menu):



I know the connections are correct as If I wire my reverse cam into the AV input I get display and If I try an external device via the reverse cam input I get the same useless image.

I've tried several devices (DVD player, HDMI to composite converter, SJ Cam etc) and non work.

I'm hoping I'm just missing something obvious as I'm at a loss as to why it's not working. Any help would be appreciated!_a_

You may need to change the aux to pal or ntsc depending on your I device input. If your reverse cam is working then it's sounding the six is set to ntsc

I forgot to mention I've tried changing between PAL and NTSC on the TV module and on some devices that can output both formats. It makes no difference other than altering the appearance of the distortion.

Are you using a screened cable between source and aux ? This is the only other thing I can think of.

These are the cables I'm using:



They're made from some old RCA Amp cables. If the reverse cam will work I can't see how the cables would make a difference?
