e53 Reversing camera

Hi, did you ever manage to get the camera to work? I've just been told about these cameras and can't believe how cheap. Didi you have to buy any other interface for the camera and the TV? One of the cameras I've seen needs the wires to go all the way to the monitor, is that what you did? Cheers
