    According to the manuals, you cannot hook up both at the same time. I have not tried it.

    you can definitely hook both up at once as i have used it to turn on and off osd, i just cant remember and didn't look to see if telemetry was on the iphone when i did some aerials latley for a festival, i was just wondering.

    You can use one to control, the other to view. It will not output 2 simultaneous video feeds from both the USB and HDMI ports- only one or the other. You can for example, use an iOS device to control the lightbridge settings and view telemetry then plug in an HDMI monitor to view the FPV video. Whichever is the last one to get plugged in takes the priority video feed. If it looks like they are both working at the same time it's because the iOS app freezes the video on the last frame before you plug in an HDMI monitor.
