I followed the instructions from post #6 (connected red wire from fuse box to head unit and tapped an RCA cable to the backup camera wires (red to shield, white to white)), and was able to connect my factory OEM camera to my Pioneer headunit (avh-p8400bh). However, the feed is reversed. The video feed for the camera pops up during Park, Neutral, and drive INSTEAD of Reverse.
What am I doing wrong here?
Edit: Ok figured out I need to change the polarity of the camera in the software to Battery.
However, after fixing this issue, I notice that my headunit automatically switches to the backup camera after about 5 secs in Park, Neutral, or Drive. Switching to reverse and then back only fixes the problem for another 5 seconds. However, If I switch to reverse during the 5 seconds that it is normal, the backup camera automatically pops up on the head unit. *scratches head*
