Interfacing to 2011 OEM backup camera, AVIC-8100NEX

Hi all - first post here. I wanted to see if anyone could provide a definitive answer regarding interfacing the OEM backup camera to a Pioneer AVIC-8100NEX in dash nav, or any other nav HU for that fact. I've seen some posts say you can just alter an RCA video cable and interface that way, and others say you need something akin to a Beat-Sonic BC6+BC1 interface adapter. Part of the discussions I've seen also say there's a need to step-down the +12V signal to 6V in order to properly capture the signal.
So, with that said - does anyone have a definitive answer on this? What has worked? I apologize if the answer is buried somewhere in these forums, but if so, I'd appreciate some guidance one way or the other.

Thanks in advance for any responses and help.

Have a great day!

What method DID work for you? Do you remember? I've seen most of the references people point to like the link above (alexapps), but people still report failures while some say it works....I'm wondering if it just comes down to loose taps, incorrect wiring, or bad solder (shorts too?). The whole 12V vs. 6V argument doesn't seem resolved in most forums either....but as EthanSienna said, different trim packages may present slight differences in wiring, combined with the various head units people have installed.
I haven't attempted any other method yet. The summer heat has made sitting in a parked car for hours not very attractive. When the weather cools a bit, I'll try again.
Did u ever successfully install the backup camera??
