Does Video-out work with Live View?

Before I spend the next 2 hours pulling the house apart trying to find my video out cable. I have a question.

If i turn live view on, will it display through the video-out connection.

Which camera?

On the K-x, yes. LiveView will display on an external video monitor. It's in the manual.

the K-7 does allsoo, but I only use a HDMI cable. There is no sound during recording (otherwhise you ould be recording your own sound),. Same goes for liveview. Also in the manual. The cable are in your camerabox when you bought it.

Sorry guys, the K-x

Mine didnt come with a Video cable, its an optional accessory. I have my ist*DL cable lying around somewhere, which is the same one I believe.

Yeah, the cable supplied with my K200D also works fine connecting my K-x to a TV, although it only terminates in one RCA style plug, instead of two like the I-AV C7 cable shown in the manual. There are also twin-headed AV cables that say they will work with the K-x available on eBay, I noticed the other day.
