Should be 720x424   Not 480.  That will do it for you!

sbright33, no luck for me, sorry, i changed the script, silent pic says it took the pictures just fine, i tried in live view full hd and record mode, no matter what way i do it i get this error during conversion using the script with python:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "422-jpg.py", line 138, in <module>
    convert_422_bmp(input, change_ext(input, ".jpg"))
  File "422-jpg.py", line 114, in convert_422_bmp
    raise Exception, "unknown image size: %d" % len(data)
Exception: unknown image size: 610560

This is what I changed in script:
 elif len(data) == 720*480*2:
        w, h = 720, 480
    elif len(data) == 928*616*2:
        w, h = 928, 616

I am using the latest repository update I compiled on my machine. Its been same results since slient pic started coming alive from Coutts magic coding.
interesting.. that 610560 is the x*y*2, ex: 720*480*2=691,200.
that means that for some reason your pictures are smaller? hm. you are using the latest code from the repository? odd.. does magic zoom appear to work?

nothings even checked for video mode, i'm just concentrating on live view for now so don't bother testing video mode yet as i know nothing probably works yet for that (focus peaking, silent pics and magic zoom at least).

Yes, am using latest repository, and magic zoom works fine, and I was only checking SP in movie mode cause you were talking about being in HD mode, but either mode seems to take the SP the same except when recording, I see the slice in the pic, I dont know how to switch to the bigger SP though the 928x616 you mentioned, but yeah, MZ works great actually!! 8] and SP works both in single and burst mode.

i just noticed that Coutts had a newer repos update right after i got the latest one, so now it does 928x616 as it should since I see Coutts updated the zebra.c with those values, great job!!! I am guessing the slice in the screen is just the rolling shutter cutting the image when not on tripod, cause it gives the same effect as rolling shutter gives when you video tape around flashers, so it seems to work just fine, no way to fix rolling shutter since that is just how cmos cams are made, just in case anyone tests it while hand held, so they know not to blame it on the firmware. 8]

Finally it works for me! Stayed up late testing it. Don't know what I was doing wrong before. Thanks everyone! Will wait for official release of SP HD.

sbright do u need the compile of the 928x616 version, the one i sent you is the version right before the latest which only did 720x424?

Noticed a few things with Motion Detect and SP.  Display never goes off.  It does fine with Intervelometer!  But it comes on every interval.  The ML menu gets stuck on.  Will not go away.  ML/trash button fails to work from then on.  I guess these will be hard to track down, even though they are repeatable.
