    I don't know what cable you are using, or what device to trigger….

    But, in mu experience you only need to connect the one cable, Start / Stop.

    White, if you are using this cable from Red.

    Don't have a camera in front of me right now. But from memory. GPIO Set one to Rec start, and two to Rec stop.

    You need to jump out of the menu for the changes to take effect.

    Brain GPIO (this is the camera body)

    Cam input: General purpose in
    gpi high: rec start
    gpi low: rec stop

    cam output: sync out
