You can use the 40D if you use a program like Extra Webcam
It lets you use a Canon DSLR as a webcam, which means you can capture the liveview feed using any webcam recorder (I use sharpcap).
You might be able to do it in Backyard EOS too but I'm not sure about the 40D.

The 40D might be better that the 5DmkII as it has smaller pixels and the liveview feed should be the same resolution.
