Switching on the R5 after setting both slots to record jpg revealed that the camera had once again reverted to jpg. After some research yielded no solution, I guessed that the problem was that I had set the camera to “Rec. separately” instead of “Rec. to multiple.” Changing to “multiple” solved it.
