I'm not familiar with the details of the NEX 7 firmware, but with my NEX C3 the HDMI only works for DISPLAY. It will not work for LIVEVIEW (or whatever Sony calls it). This is another case of Sony intentionally restricting features that the camera could have if they only allowed it. Liveview on a 7" HD HDMI Lilliput monitor is a great feature I can use with my Canon T1i, but unfortunately the NEX C3 will not allow it.

So basically, on the NEX C3 I can view photos already taken via an HDMI connection, but I cannot use the HDMI to aid in taking photos. I would not be surprised if the NEX 7 has the same limitation.

you can view them on the HDMI display when pressing the PLAY button?

vie photos AND live view gives me no signal
