DIY: Eachine Goggles 2 DVR installation

DVR installation

Here is the step by step procedure to install a Eachine proDVR to your Goggles Two FPV Goggles (source RCgroups).

1)Diagram 1: solder the black wire to ÿGNDÿ, and the red wire to ÿVCCÿ. This is to supply power to the DVR.

2)Diagram 2: Splice the first wire from the right, and connect this to the ÿAudio Inÿ cable on the DVR.

3)Diagram 3: The second wire from the right is the ÿvideo outÿ wire. Split this cable, and connect it to the ÿvideo inÿ and ÿvideo outÿ wires on the DVR as shown below.

4)After completing Steps 1 ÿ 3, properly insulate the wires. Pass the connector through the ventilation holes on top of the goggles. Connect the connector to the DVR and secure the DVR

6)This concludes the installation of the DVR to the goggles two FPV Goggles.

Be aware with such wiring, the signal pass through the DVR and will introduce extra latency. One possibility is to use an extra 2-position switch to enable/disable DVR AVout feedback.

    Hello SeBy DocKy! The only problem I see here with your post is that if you run the signal back through the DVR and then back into the goggles video wire you get a ton of latency!! I tried it both ways, for I did this mod a week ago and tried it both ways and ended up just using the video out from goggles to the video in of the DVR I didn’t even use any audio for I don’t use or need it from the quad, but back to the video feed, if you run it back into dvr via the outs of the DVR back into the stream of video wire in goggles there is a very noticeable delay in the picture or video. The only reason you would really need it to do so is to use the OSD which I did by connecting the outs of the DVR to my TV or any monitor with RCA inputs on it…VERY SIMPLE and not needed in the goggles per say for all you need to know is how to record with the unit and that can be done without OSD. The only other reason to do that would be if you REALLY wanted to view your DVR footage with the goggles instead of PC or what have you and that is not needed as well so much. I just thought I’d mention it and let you and anyone that is going to do this mod that it WILL be delayed and have latency with it going through the DVR and back out into goggles!! Thanks! L8r-Turbo.

      Hi, Thanks for this remark but I already warned about this extra latency at the end of the post. With a three position switch you can have both direction connexion and the loop one through the DVR 🙂

        Right-O I didn’t see that part lol sorry!!! Yes that would fix the issue I wish I would’ve maybe done this as well, but I really do not need video out from the DVR to the goggles really? I only use it to record and I watch on PC or something else I suppose it might be handy to have though! Thanks-Turbo.

    What if you just wire the video out of the DVR into an rca male, then use the included rca input cable into the aux-in on the Goggles 2? then I would think you could just use the Goggle controls to switch inputs to Aux when you want to view/ control the dvr. I’m still waiting on mine to arrive, but this seems like it should work and remove the need for adding another switch.

    • Josh F says:

      unless you really wanted headphones hooked up I guess, but then you could just swap them in and out.

      FYI, this worked as I expected. The only issue I ran into is to make sure the dvr / fpv cam / goggles / betaflight / etc are all set to PAL or NTSC. Once all mine were set to PAL, I got it to work via the AV-IN plug.

    This connection will cause awful latency – very bad for racing. Why not split the video signal to RCA connector (Video Out) and connect DVR to it? ProDVR can be controlled by buttons only, no need to see in OSD.
