K20D Video Output

Hi there, I am trying to track down an answer from someone who possesses a mains power adaptor for this model

On a K20D can the Video Output lead be made to 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, even if the timer menu is set to off ?

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
