ISO range in TAv mode? (K20d)

Yesterday, while out roaming around, I decided to give the TAv mode a try in some fading light. I noticed that it seemed unwilling to go ahead and set a very high ISO, however. (Only up to 400, it seemed? ) I was wondering if there was a way to expand the range this mode will accept. From the manual, it doesn't seem so. Just wondering if anyone knows a way. It'd make the mode more useful to me.)

Perhaps I am stating the obvious, but it depends on what limits you have set in Auto-ISO (via Fn button).

With the K20D, TAV mode puts you in Auto ISO but, using the rear dial, you can set the max ISO all the way up to 6400.

I just tested TAV on the K20.
It worked just fine, up to ISO 6400.

Aha. Thank you. That was just the sort of obvious thing I thought I might be missing. I never actually used the auto-ISO in all this time, you see.
