6DmkII - wrong mode

Question

I had used version 3.1.17.RC1 during last half of year. And the most annoying problem was the following: time to time BYE fails with current mode detection. The bulb on the body set to M mode forever. But BYE time to time define it as Tv or B with wrong shutter (e.g. 1/60 instead of 30 sec). I`ve black shots in this case... 

Today I installed 3.1.17.RC3 and... The problem still here. Right after starting BYE I se

But if I started EOS Utility I see:

And in this certain case it is OK, I already now it will shoot correcty... But in other case when BYE think mode is B - its a bad situation. 

Often it happens when I switching BYE from Imaging to Frame&Focus or to Planetary and back.

You're not giving me a lot to go on; the comment is cryptic and the images don't provide any error message.

Do you get an error message?

What do you mean the Bulb on the body is set to M?  Do you mean the dial?

Go to settings and delete the cache.  Send me the log file if the problems persist.

Yes, I mean dial. Always on M. 

There is no error message, there is wrong behavior.

After BYE started I see Tv dial. Switching to Frame&Focus and see B dial.

Switching between Imaging, Frame&Focus, etc changing Dial. Why? 

Usually it does not cause problems, but sometimes after such changing BYE makes very shot sutter like 1/60 instead of value specified in Capture Plan Center. It looks like normal shots, but really I get black image with 1/60 exposure. Can`t repeat it 100% unfortunately. 

Cache cleaned. Logs attached.

Also, since your are saying that this occurs mostly when moving to/from live view....  is "Settings -> Live View -> Maximum Sensitivity" options checked in the setting window?  If yes uncheck it and see if you still have the same issue.

The 6DMkII has a physical B dial mode for BULB.  Is your camera dial physically set to B or M?

 

Yes, it has. But I never use it. It always set to M. 

By the way, if see that BYE has missed mode again (especially when BYE shows B mode) I came out to the  scope and rotate bulb on camera one step forward and one step back. After that I see right bulb mode in BYE.

Ok, go to Settings -> Advance Settings and check "Camera Force Read Properties".  This will force BYE to download current property values before taking a picture.  Keep us posted.
