Pentax K5iis live view problem with Sigma 50-500

I am having K5iis along with Sigma 50-500 (pre HSM).
Today I was trying to see how much AF adjustment the Sigma required by using Live View as the basis for correct focus.
But to my surprise, the Live View couldn't focus. It was front focusing all the time.
But the LV seems to work on my Pentax 100mm lens. But not with 50-500. At varying focal lengths too.
What could be wrong? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks

Looks like there is already a thread. My mistake. I will request admin to delete/close this if possible
