"Force HDMI-VGA" issue on DIGIC 5
I was trying to get Force HDMI-VGA to work on 700D, it didn't work, I had a black screen for a few seconds after activating it then it's get back to 1080i output and it does this again and again...
I tried to debug the problem, I found "Force HDMI-VGA" isn't working only when the camera in LiveView, I modified the code so I code enable "Force HDMI-VGA" in none still photo mode and play mode, after doing that "Force HDMI-VGA" has worked finally, now I had 720x480 output instead of 1080i output, switching the camera to LiveView would change the output back to 1080i, and the camera will try to get into 720x480 again and again, 1080i output then black screen then 1080i output then black screen in loop.
These have been tested on 700D, I believe other DIGIC 5 cameras are affected too, at this point there are no testers. All builds behave the same when using "Force HDMI-VGA" on 700D.
