Thank you very much for the thread and answers. I was asking myself the same thing and when I googled found the thread on my fav forum! Cause I only know how to record the screen of my laptop/pc. I'll need this as well, to create after all a video for my youtube channel with this software. But first the stream from the camera. So one more time, thank you)

One thing to add is that the back of camera displays look slightly different on a connected HDMI screen/device. The camera "knows" that it's on the HDMI devices and some touch screen icons get moved or look different. Also HDMI devices have a 16:9 aspect ratio so some icons are moved a little in comparison to the 3:2 ratio LCD screen.
Fruthermore one or two functions won't display on an HDMI screen / device. Say you want to show manual focus peaking, the only way on the EOS R is to photograph the back of the camera. Even the settings menu is not displayed when you connect an HDMI device.
I make screengrabs of the camera menus for some workshops and writing activities I do, As a result I know quite a lot about what works and what doesn't over HDMI for most of the EOS cameras.
