To the video input of the monitor, TV, you can use one contact, and not three, only this jack.

The idea was to playback audio as well, so it's thats why all jacks are connected. Yellow cinch is for video only.
But if somebody needs just video one cinch is enough...

Then yes, just why?
I watch video from dvr and listen to music.
Just checked - if just one (yellow - video in) cinch is connected only picture is played.
Sound appears after connecting two remaining cinchs.

Sound from which source?
There is no sound in AV output !!!
In this installation camera is recording video from both channels (front and rear) and audio (from internal microphone).
In playback mode recorded files(with sound!) are played using central console screen and car speakers...
So - there is sound in AV output.

And where is the play mode in A129D?
User Manual page 15:

Playback Videos
Under standby mode (not recording), press [ ! ] button to enter the playlist.
Use the arrow buttons [<| |> ] to select the desired video and press the button [ ! ] to play.
Press the [ = ] button to exit.

Hey skansen, how did you connect your A129 to the blackvue b-124 battery? Did you just the cigarette 12v connection or the HK3 kit? Does it give all the parking mode functionalities? Thanks

Hi teefdoc,

In this installation I'm using Viofo Hardwire Kit, mainly for switching parking/normal mode on camera. All parking mode functionalities are working well.


Viofo Hardwire Kit is connected with B-124 using 3 wire cable, made by me using silicone wires. Yellow wires were not available so I made my cable using two reds (photo below).

My custom cable is simillar to the Black Vue Dashcam hardwiring power cable (3 wired) (photo below). This cable is not avilable in Poland so I decided to do it myself rather than wait for international shipping.

Thank you Skansen for the photos and explanation,

Glad to know your A129 + B-124 combination is working well. When I asked blackboxmycar, they said the voltage cut-off regulator of the HK3 will cause the camera to power off before the battery pack drains. Do you know if your B-124 drops below the lowest HK3 voltage cutoff setting (11.8V) during use?

Also, if I were to make a similar cable for my cellink neo, couldn't I just plug a molex connector to the 3-wire end of the HK3 kit, so I don't need to splice extra wires? My cellink neo comes with a a cigarette output cable, from which I can take the connector out of.

Cut of voltage on kit is set on the lowest level - 11.8V. Power Bank will provide ~12V until the end. Once I left car for more than 24 hours camera was recording until power bank was completely empty.

Also, if I were to make a similar cable for my cellink neo, couldn't I just plug a molex connector to the 3-wire end of the HK3 kit, so I don't need to splice extra wires? My cellink neo comes with a a cigarette output cable, from which I can take the connector out of.
Yes you can. I need longer cables so I shortened factory hardwire cables and the whole distance I wired with silicone cables. I suggest the same for you, even if hardwire kit cables are long enough. Its because insulation of hardwire cables is very thick and as a result its difficult to properly connect molex pin. Silicone cables are also more flexible and durable.
Parts number of molex components are as follow:
430300007 crimp terminal
797580010 crimp terminal with 300mm 20 AWG cable
436450400 crimp housing
