I will phil. I tested both cameras on 9 different types of TVs with exact same results. B/W, B/W, B/W....

My fear is that the ones you sent me (SMD crystal) are outputting black & white video, but the ones you showed in the TTL Camera tutorial (the ones w/ a shiny metal can crystal) output color video for some reason. can you verify that you are getting color on the TTL cameras that have a white SMD crystal? Also can you test it on this display as well as this one? (I need that display so that I can bring it to places with no outlet..)

Sorry adabot for not sending them in, then forgetting all about the cameras in a drawer. Ever since my last post on this page I've been going through a TON of stressful problems. (Laptop died, Nearly lost my 1st job & went through a lot of depression) I still have the 2 cameras and would like to finish our plans some time next week.

Are you still open to doing this?

Where should I address them to? Do you need anything such as a tracking number?

You sent a refund for the camera? I have no record of reviving any money from anyone but my mother and one payment of $16 from you since june of 2012. Do you have any record/documentation on your end of issuing a refund? I'm not saying you never sent it, paypal just has no record of anything like that and I don't remember ever getting any further than talking to you about the problem and seeing you tell me about how you would send the refund after you got a tracking number. The refund was for the ttl camera ($39.96), and the difference between the next day shipping I choose & ground. I choose next-day ONLY so that I could use the camera on my R/C airplane at a local meet up that was going to happen the day after I would receive the next-day shipment. Which unfortainatly never happened because the camera only got b/w composite video on all of my tvs.

Can you look into this? Thanks and again sorry for all this trouble.

Have you found any documentation or proof that shows that you sent the refund? Have you had time to look yet? I'm getting a bit worried about the situation. I spent a good 8 or so hours looking through paypal's history, using their forums and even calling their customer support line for any sign that shows when you sent it. I have been unable to find anything though.

Please help me out with this. I don't want to find that you sent the refund to the wrong account without letting me know before you sent it. Not that I think that is what happened tho.
