Can the Hero 5 Session charge and output HDMI at the same time using USB-C?

I'd like to power the Hero 5 Session externally while outputting HDMI video - is this possible?

 

For example using something like this:

I tried with these 2 cables to get HDMI out of the USB-C connection, without succes Smiley Sad The Hero 5 is charging but no HDMI output...

Is there another solution? Am I doing something wrong? Will GoPro provide a USB-C to HDMI adapter?

I tried the Apple one I listed above - didn't work for me.  I suspect it's something that does not work at this point.

GoPro is missing the boat here. I'm having to downgrade. Not happy! 🙁😡

Can anyone at GoPro verify if the hero 5 session will output hdmi via USB-c to hdmi? Do I need a firmware update?
