Camera Connect App - no live view?

Hi all


I recently purchased the wi-fi card for my Canon 5Ds R in order to use live view option on my smartphone but when I connect up and press the live view button on my phone I hear the mirror go up but the screen on my phone is just blank (black).


Is there anything I'm doing wrong? Any help much appreciated.
