Live view is for weekend P&S 'ers.

If you want live view, look out a window.

This may be a joke I'm not getting, but I gotta ask:

why do some people seem to complain about Live View? If you don't want it, then don't use it, but why bothe complaining and criticizing everyone who wants Live View and think it can be useful?

Being able to preview your image is oe of the main advantages of digital photography. The list of situations when Live View can be useful has been written again and again, no one can say it has no uses at all.

But maybe you were just joking...

Very importantly, live-view activates when shooting 21fps sequences - mirror stays up and you need the LCD for following action.
Pentax are very, very smart.

Because some people just have to find fault, no matter what.

Well... whatever some may think about it, I've used live view on my K20D much more than I could have anticipated when I replaced my K10D by the K20D.

It's useful for working on a tripod and directing a group of subjects to the correct positions and attitudes (you're not shouting instructions from behind a camera but talking to them directly), and great for keeping an eye on composition when shooting from high or low (I did this regularly before, but it was always hit and miss without live view).

Yeah... what Wim said. I don't have it on my K10D, but it'd be nice to use from time to time.

And it works well with Manual Focus

It really helps in manual focus. You can zoom in during live view to tweak the focus.

I am unable to get the live view to work. I have reviewed all the instructions and the camera is not over heated. I hear a noise as if the mirror is being lifted but no live view. Any suggestions?

Never mind, I looked further and found the answer under Custom Settings. It works great as it should now.

I just close my eyes and use my jedi powers to follow the action instead.
