K01 hdmi out

Can I use the k01 hdmi out for monitoring video/stills shoot on external monitor, or it is just for payback already recorded shots?

I am going to say no for stills, based on this quote from page 181 of the manual:

"Caution: The camera stays in playback mode while the HDMI cable is connected to it. Remove the HDMI cable to enable shooting."

It seems like video should be different, but I can't tell by reading the manual.

That is correct; I can confirm that as soon as you connect an HDMI cable, sadly, the K-01 goes into playback mode.

But doesn't the K-01 behave like the K-x and K-5? - by default they both go into playback mode, but as soon as you hit the LV button - bingo! - full display of everything the camera sees on your external monitor, and full shooting use of the camera too.

Um, isn't the k-01s native mode live view? Why would it need a LV button?

You are of course right. I edited my post to remove my dumbness.

The no-HDMI video out during record was the single biggest deal breaker for me when it came to the K-01.
