I have a Canon 7D Mark II and a Macbook running MacOS 10.15.7 running the 1.1 release of the EOS Webcam Utility. I have the camera setup as a webcam and works great except for one new behavior. If I'm in a meeting longer than 30 minutes, it'll shutoff almost exactly at 30 minutes for a couple seconds and then reconnect. It sounds like it is power cycling. In the Setting menu I already adjusted the Auto Power Off to disabled. When I had the beta webcam utility, this wasn't happening. Only really started noticing it after I updated it to 1.1.
Any thoughts on how to fix this?

Me too. 7D Mark II firmware v.1.1.3 and auto power off disabled , MB Pro w/ Big Sur, webcam utility 1.0
Every 30 minutes camera disconnects and reconnects after a second or two.

Still not working for me. Are you taking out both the SD and CF card? Also, what setting are you using for the camera (e.g. AV/P, live view mode, etc)?

Not yet, going to test the auto power off set a 1 min to see if that works. I did find that if I tap the shoot button it resets the 30 minute timer. Kind of annoying since I have meetings that go over 30 minutes but it's a hack for now. Still looking for a more permanent fix.
