Question Audio/Video Wiring Diagram

In an attempt to clean up my wiring for my Audio/Video, I have put together the attached wiring diagram. I am hoping someone can review to ensure I am not missing anything or have something wired wrong. I obtained most of the info by searching or asking questions on the forum. I have the following I am trying to properly setup:

TVandNav2go
2-Headrest LCD monitors
1-DVD player (console)
Rearview camera

Few questions on the diagram:

1) What size in line fuse should I use for my battery connection?
2) Am I using the correct gauge wiring?
3) Do I ground everything at the circuit or is there a better way?
4) Any suggestion on actual circuits to use?
5) Any suggestions on the video splitter?

Thanks

looks like you have everything in order. I don't think 10 gauge is too
small, and I'm sure you can get a way with a 40amp fuse. As
far a circuit, I'm not sure what you mean here, unless you are talking
about power distribution, which would totally be up to you how this
is done. You could use a barrier strip or a fancy distro block.

As far as your diagram, it looks ok, though I don't think you need to
run a ground all the way to the battery. if you've got things
disassembled you can see where the factory did grounding and
use it, while some people have used the seat bolts or something
to that effect. You should probably check the location you use
with a DMM to see if you get 12v battery to ground.

I'm not a video person, but I would suggest you get either a video
amplifier or a splitter that has a built in video amplifier. It maybe isn't
needed if you are going to just the 2 screens, but if you add more,
you may need to boost the signal.

I googled to see what was available and it seems a lot of the
screen manufacturers have these.

Mods (2005 C): Stereo only, PAC SNI, Peripheral CHYX, XM Commander, AudioControl four.1, MTX TA5604, MTX TA5601, Polk MMC6500, Polk MMC690, JL CS212R-W0 (2013 C): None..........yet
