@a1ex and all others here :)

Are there any news/fixes for the bug with the black bars that appear on the HDMI out display?
See my posts from january, beginning here:

Any hints about this or is there anything I can help with fixing this?

>Expected result? (how does a good screen look like?)
No Canon standard firmware bars with the vertical grey lines on the left and right, so a clean and a little bit larger screen of the camera's live view, see this image:

>There's no focus box either; how did you hide it?
The only two settings I made in ML is "Clear Overlays: always" and "Global Draw: off".
"Focus Box Setttings" is set to "Display: Auto-Hide", but I guess this is the default.

>The bars are not symmetrical (both in position
>and colors)
Colors are correct in "real life" - it is justed caused by my bad smartphone camera quality :)
But you are right that the live view is not centered on the external monitor. But this is only a matter of the external monitor: I had to set the "mirror option" in the external monitor, as a workaround, because the mirror setting in ML does not work for the HDMI out, as you know. If I do not mirror the video signal in the external monitor, it is perfectly centered. So not an issue of the video signal of ML.

>Is the clear overlays feature working properly on the built-in LCD?
Yes, on the build-in LCD it is always perfectly cleared, on the external only sometimes when I switch on the camera and never, when I take a photo (when the live view gets black and switches on again). It is important to know, that I am in the Movie mode of the camera. If I switch to M or another photo mode, the display is cleared well after taking a photo and going back to live view.

>Reproduced the display orientation issue on 60D, but apparently
>this one is handled by the built-in LCD controller, so it's very hard to fix.
That would be bad, because I would have to live with my workaround to set the mirror option in my external monitor which leads to a black stripe on the right, because of it's issues no centering the image when in mirror mode. See also the current picture.

PS: Maybe interesting to know: normally I set the movie resolution to 640 Pixel in the Canon, which can lead to the described bug of the stripes right and left until pressing the delete button twice.
If I set movie resolution to 1280 or 1920, stripes appear on the top an bottom, if the bug occurs. But when pressing the Delete-Button twice, the video signal is also scaled, without the stripes (as in the 640 mode).

Here is a sample image:

  • The only options I have activated in ML is "Clear Overlays: always" and "Global Draw: off"
  • I am in film mode on the 600D
  • The bars appear -sometimes- when turning the camera on, but only in the HDMI output.
  • The bars appear -always- when I take a photo (while in film mode, but not recording), so that the output gets black and when the liveview comes back, the bars are there.

When I press the Trash-Button twice, the overlays are cleared again, as they should be.
If I plug out the HDMI cable, so that the liveview is shown on the camera display, the bars are always gone, as they should be.

What I also noticed is that the Option "Advanced settings -> Orientation: mirror" is not enabled for the HDMI output.

It would really be great if these two issues can be fixed.

I just made an update to the current nightly build (2017-12-07), to hopefully get a bug fixed, but the "missing feature" is still there:

I want to have clear display of the live view. Therefor I turned on the option "clear overlays" and set it to "always".
This works on the camera display, but when using the HDMI out of the camera I get the black/grey borders on the right and left side, nearly every time I switch on the camera again - but not always

When pressing [Trash] button, the displays is cleared fine every time. But next time I shut the camera off and on, the black borders are there again and I have to press [Trash] again.
Anyone else having this problem?

I found the user fdwet, who also had/has this problem with a 100D:

My problem is that my 600D is placed in a case, so I can not press the Trash button every time the camera is powered on.
