Re: Charging while Streaming Live no longer works after NOV Firmware update

Excellent work and diagnosis there!  I have a 10ft cable and a 15ft cable.  I know that using a cable over 15ft isn't recommended, I had issues myself hooking up to external power for extended timelapses using longer cables.  Glad you got the issue sorted though, good work!

I'm having this same issue and I've tried all types of cables including the short GoPro cable included with the camera, on a variety of power/charging USB ports.

 

I do think that the December firmware update did something to affect this. I cannot charge while streaming. It charges fine while not streaming!
