Also, make sure you have the switch for the internal receiver set to off when using the av plug.
That's exactly what it was, when I hooked it up to my FPV gear I got the same thing, and when I felt the connection to make sure it was in I notices a flicker so I played with it and noticed pulling it out tad gave me a picture.

zaguruinzasky, webdr, Glenstr, I've got the some problem with the head tracker. Sometimes it moved for a second or so on its own. and then it stops. The movement is not very smooth but works. Did you have luck with finding solution? Did you report to somebody?

I reported the problem ( this problem:
Fatshark Dominator Head Tracker problem (1 min 39 sec)
) to Gregory at FatShark, he sent me a new unit few days ago with a new updated firmware (v3), I will let you know as soon as I receive it. He agrees with me that it's not normal.

Can anyone with the Futaba head tracking cable give me a picture with the pinout for the PS2 end and the Futaba square plug end? I'm thinking of making up a cable myself and wanted to make sure I had it right.

If you wear glasses like me i don't think the rubber cup will fit, need to take off my glasses in order to use this

That is what the Diopter lenses are for.
You get a variety of lenses for $20 that insert right into the goggles, surely one set out of the package will work for you:

I would love to know this too...

Perhaps a higher resolution and wider FOV display with a very good scaling engine to scale up the video nicely. I guess that might bring all sorts of problems with lag etc but my samsung hi def tv does quite a good job of scaling up standard def tv so why can't my video goggles?

In the mean time I'm just chomping at the bit waiting for the new HD camera... he said he hopes to be able to release some info this week if all goes to plan.

hate the av port problem a slight move sometime render the video links loss if you are flying that would be disastrous!

My plan was to output the 5.8rx stream to a DVR while I view the feed and fly on my goggles.. is this not possible?
On my workbench tests, My tx is transmitting the image, my goggles display said image. I've got the dominator video cables plugged into the goggle video plug on one end and into the DVR's video-in on the other. The resulting videos are just blackness.. timestamp is accurate, but no image.. Any ideas?
