Is your question:
How to use ML with external HDMI monitor and camera rear display at the same time?
If so: No way. At the moment only 5D3 with firmware 1.2.x allows dual screen.

If your question is another one: Please rephrase your question. Maybe use Deepl.com translator.

My cameras are 5D 2 and 700D  when I stream live and plug in the HDMI cable the camera screen switches off so I have to go back to the monitor screen to view.

As I told: Nothing ML can do about.
