Add a DVR to the Eachine EV800

This is super quick and easy. I won’t take credit for this mod, however I would like to put it down in writing (I prefer looking up how tos on web pages since video tutorials are slow). The video (which I didn’t do) of the mod can be found here.

I used an Eachine ProDVR on these goggles. I have another pair of goggles in which I used an HMDVR and connected it in the same way shown here.

Step 1:

Remove the 4 screws on the front monitor part of the goggles:

Step 2:

Carefully open up the case and locate the video receiver (large metal square).

Step 3:

Find a good spot to drill a hole so you can run the wires between the receiver and DVR.

Step 4:

Connect the wires to the video receiver as shown:

  • Red is + (goes on 5th solder point from the top)
  • Black is ground (goes on 1st solder point from the top)
  • Yellow is video in (goes on 2nd solder point from the top)

Step 4:

Put it back together.
