  1. Will this work on the T6i? There is no magic Lantern software (yet) and audio monitoring would help greatly. FYI I do have the Lilliput monitor hooked up via hdmi.

  2. I love this, thank you….As high school film teacher I just bought 3 Canon T5i's. The USB to composite (R-G-Y) cable did not come with the cameras. Before I invest in one will your config work for my camera's? Or would you suggest something else or something new that allows the monitoring of audio thru a headphone?
    Thanks pal!

  3. This doesn't work. I have a Canon Rebel t3i (600D), Lilliput monitor, the amplifier, the Y- split cable, the AV cable that came with the camera. Everything is plugged in right. Headphones -> Amplifier -> Y Split cable -> av cords -> camera. The monitor works just fine plugged into camera. I have successfully downloaded Magic Lantern. I have an external mic that works fine. I go to turn "Headphone Monitoring ON" in the ML settings, and try to do a test beep, but an error comes up and says "600D does not support play and monitoring." I am beyond frustrated because of the time and money put forth to making this work, and it doesn't. What am I doing wrong?

  4. Is there any reason you would not want to use the headphone output of the Lilliput monitor?  Is there some type of lag that would screw things up?  With the HDMI plugged from the 5D Mark II in to the Input HDMI of the Lilliput and Magic Lantern, you should be able to plug earphones in to the earphone monitor of the Lilliput and listen to the real-time audio correct?
