Dear friends! I was trying to use camera for remote video recording with IR remote control (camera was placed on the stage during concert).
But after 5 minutes of inactivity camera is switching from normal mode and show message:

"pressing the shutter release button while Live View is on stars movie record function"

And camera don't react to shutter button! So it don't react to IR remote as well and i can't start recording .

Can this message be switched off?
cam: Pentax K-5, firmware 1.16
