Nikon D780 LiveView issue

Question

I recently downloaded the 2.1.1 Trial Edition to run some tests, I plan to use it together with TheSkyX, but it appears to be bugged for my camera.

I have found that on my Nikon D780 the LiveView function is not working. 
When pressing the Frame&Focus button I cannot see any image and the log reports a unending list of:

21:32:49  Parameter is not valid.
21:32:50  Parameter is not valid.
21:32:50  Parameter is not valid.
21:32:50  Parameter is not valid.
21:32:50  Parameter is not valid.
21:32:50  Parameter is not valid.
21:32:51  Parameter is not valid.

Camera is set to M, shooting is in S mode. LiveView woks flawlessy on Camera Control Pro 2.

If I press the LiveView button on the camera while BYN Frame&Focus is active, I can see the LiveView image on the camera LCD, and on pressing the LiveView  pause button in BYN the LiveView disappears from the camera LCD, and I can hear the shutter noise. In no case I can manage to see the LiveView on BYN.

Also I have tested the LiveView function on a D7100 and a D90 and with both of their cameras it works very well.

The Snap Image and Loop works well in Frame&Focus and Capture appears to be working without any issues in Imaging.

After snapping an image in Frame&Focus, the Zoom frame is not visible and on double click to move it, I always get an Unhandled exception error (I run Windows 10 professional 64bit with 16Gbytes of RAM), you can see the details on the attached file.
This function works well on other cameras I tested.

Thank you.

I will run some more test with all possible settings, I also set the AF lever in front to M. but no result.
I tried all settings on the Autofocusing menu and the AF button in from combined with the rollers on top of the camera without result.

Of course there are hundreds of settings on this camera and It would be difficult to test all combinations...

I found a setting where, if lturning on liveview from camera, I control the focus motor of camera from BYN. 

Always if turning on liveview from camera button I can switch it off from BYN.

 

Thank you for your help
