Re: Live View, Record & Play Recorded Video on TV (HDMI Out), controlled remotely

So while in "Media" mode, I can use the remote to see the live feed in the computer?  Which is totally different from the MODE being changed to live view?  Well, that's cool.

 

And that would be the smart remote, correct?

 

Thanks a lot!

Hi  @aldrexx

 

When in Media mode, you will be able to see the live feed on the TV screen. 

 

Thanks,

Re: Live View, Record & Play Recorded Video on TV (HDMI Out), controlled remotely

yeah, I mean TV!  Not sure why I typed computer... LOL..

 

Thanks again!  I will get my hands on a smart remote and post udpates and/or questions.
