I don't recall wire colors precisely, but I do recall that there are 4 wires that need to be connected to the VTx for power and ground.
So from the 8 pin connector is was something like this:
Green & White: Battery + Pos
Black and Yellow: Battery - Neg
Purple: Video +
Gray: Video Ground
Two wires are unused
(DO NOT go off of the above, make sure you verify those colors before connecting, I'm only reciting from memory!)
I wouldn't say that the wire colors are color coded incorrectly.... Black and Red may be a generally accepted convention for Neg/Pos, but it's certainly not a standard.
