Hi @quickwater75064

 

Here are some links that may come handy:

HDMI Detectives

Best Ways to Achieve Video Out Signal via HDMI

 

Note #1: Even though your camera is plugged in, the battery will not charge during recording. It will start charging when you stop recording. You cannot record while charging with a computer.

For reference, you may check this link https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/How-to-Charge-the-Camera-Battery/ta-p/388258

 

I hope this helps.

 

Thanks!
