K20D Video Output

Hi there, I am trying to track down an answer to what many of you may think is quite obvious.

On a K20D does the Video Output lead stay active (I.E. Continously feed a separate TV or monitor) if the camera is connected to a Mains power supply unit

When used on it's internal battery it does not appear to stay active for more than about five minutes ?

I don't realy need a Mains power supply, but I will happily buy one Just to obtain the special connecting lead

With this camera and it's (Catch-in focusing) arrangment, I belive it would make an ideal unit for local and backyard wildlife photography

I have asked many dealers and even pentax themselves, but It appears to be a question that they have not been programed for !

Any thoughts would be much apprecated

welcome to the forums

does it make any difference if you change the self shutdown timeout in the settings of the camera?
I dont have a k20d so Im not sure either.

But this is the welcomes and introductions section so my advice is to repost your question in the dslr discussion section or the beginners q&a section that way you are a lot more likely to get answers
