A7II , intervalometer and video recording

Hi, all:

I am still struggling getting used to handling the A7II. I have to acknowledge, I still prefer my old A77II, for me much easier to use. But mirrorless is the thing today, and we have to follow along. Oh well..

I can use the intervalometer to set my A7II to take multiples pics. No problem there.

However, I have not yet descried how to set the camera to take successive videos via the intervalometer.  I set the camera to video, manual exposure,  but I get  the 'movie recording starts with movie button...".  Movie button set to 'movie mode only'.

I change the movie button to 'always', same message.

The intervalometer is running like it should, I can see the sound bars  running green on screen,  but for whatever the reason, I cannot make it work.

any suggestion? Thanks a lot in advance,
