Hi, I have BackyardNikon and have recently gotten a Z5 - I downloaded the release candidate above to test it on the Z5, and it seems to work well EXCEPT for when you are in Frame and Focus, you get NO live view, and there are a bunch of error messages "Parameter is not valid."  (see screen shot)

Attached are the two log files zipped up from my playing around with it - looks like you might be able to figure out the source of the problem from these.  I'm happy to help out with additional testing, etc, if you want -

No update.  I need a physical camera on hand to resolved.  If anyone lives near Ottawa Canada and is willing to lend me his/her Nikon D780 or Z5 I should be able to fix it.  I have exhausted every avenue I possibly could without have a physical camera on hand.

Sorry, I'm in the US; can't loan you mine.  Perhaps a local camera store would let you plug one in to a laptop, if your local COVID protocols allow?  Probably not worth it to rent one.  However, I am also a software developer, and would be happy to sign an NDA, install whatever you needed, hook up my Z5, and do a Zoom call with you and let you drive my laptop with BackyardNIKON running in debug mode to sort this out.  OR I can try whatever alternative you'd prefer instead, if you need someone with some technical skills  and a Z5 to help.
