Another weird idea...

My initial idea was:
"As days become shorter and available light (and mood also) diminishes I have been toying with the idea of expanding RA and K20D capabilities. As K20D has a live-view which is output to video-out also (tested, works) and I have spare Optio-S USB cable which has fortunately all 8 pins installed (both video and USB from Pentax dSLR have only pins in use) I will sacrifice it and try to make an Y-cable with both USB and video out simultaneously (if KxD is capable of that) and hook video to capture card and USB to RA and hopefully will have RA with Live-view on computer screen if I'll be lucky. So if weather is as miserable as now during WE I will give this idea a try."
Project was born dead :-(
It came out that when hooking K20D up with RA it looses Live-view :-(
Best and happy shooting, JR
