Aerial Photography with K10D issue

Hello.., first thanks in advance for any help with my camera.

I do AP work in Seattle. My K10D is a great camera for this app. Got a big question.....

I trigger the shutter remotely from the ground with an Askman AP single switch. I'm using digi camera preview system from Range Video. Here's the problem.....

Both systems work great by themselves..., BUT

When I plug the shutter remote into the camera AND plug the video/audio cable in for the downlink., the video downlink(and the LCD display on the camera) doesn't work. Engaging the switch plug into the remote jack of the camera automatically cuts off the video..,

Is there a setting in the camera or other process that will allow using both jacks in the camera simultaneous and both functioning??

Strange problem, never thought of that. You could try using a IR remote or use Remote Assistant instead to trigger the shutter.
