I have exactly the same problem! Video playback is just black. Can't tell if it's recording or not. Don't have access to a computer at the moment to check. Have you checked on the computer? Has it recorded properly? Thanks.

Is everything connected properly? From receiver to DVR video in during recording? Do you see DVRs OSD information (recording time, SD card icon etc.) on screen during playback?

Did the mod on my quanums the same way you have. +'ve, -ve, audio, video. Checked and rechecked wiring. Added 5v with low esr cap. For playback I directly use external wires that come with it to monitor. Can't see sd card recording time etc during recording. Can see them only during playback.

Don't know what to tell you guys - except for "something is wrong with your wiring".

Did you check your units before making this?
Maybe make new wiring (you have enough plugs in the kit to make a second set) and try recording directly from another camera or other analog video signal source (TV, DVD, HD cam in FPV mode, etc.). Plug video out to monitor (not with those goggles connections you just made, just directly) to check if your units work correctly and pass signal?
Did you update your units? Just asking, it doesn't save settings correctly without update. I had all functions working properly without update in PAL mode, but maybe you are using NTSC and something is different?

Guys, I had black screen issue *sometimes*. Looks like it craps out when it has no signal at startup. Simply plug it in when you are ready to record, ie. when your quad is already powered.

Hi!

Seen this and want to share my own ProDVR setup.

I recently got mine, so to test it I did a "cristmas tree" wiring:


and on goggles:



This setup includes a switch (it can be seen left top on last photo), which allows to select what currently screen showing - signal from vRX or signal from ProDVR, which is needed to be able to configure it or playback directly on screen.

After a week of flying, I was ensured that this config works and started to upgrade it:


notice, scheme includes own 12v -> 5v regulator to avoid that huge external regulator (which makes whole goggles set look like a bomb). There is no filtering caps on scheme, but I added them later on the board.

Board layout:


Assembling, instead of having wire mess, I wanted to have all mess hidden on PCB. Ok, I got mess everywhere (:



The case was big enough to hide ProDVR in it, so there is in addition three buttons to control it:



Switch vRX/ProDVR on the left, on the center three buttons to control ProDVR and power switch, now I not need to constantly plug in/out battery.

And this is how it looks assembled on goggles:
