Connectivity

Good morning. I have just bought a Hero 7 Sillver. I am very disappointed that I cannot connect directly to my Smart TV. As the device does not have an HDMI output I have further purchased a USB C to HDMI cable but this still does not work. Is there a solution to this please?

 

Regards

Re: Connectivity

GoPro limits each Model.  If you wanted to hook up to a Smart tv  with a wire you get the Black. But do not let that disappoint you, why not look into howto do it wirelessly, through the smartphone.  I am sure there is a way to d othat. screencast it. or air drop etc...  just a thought out loud.

 

It's like a car in order to get what you want you got to go up in models.    check out screencasting

Re: Connectivity

Many thanks for your reply and info. I'm not willing to pay that big increase for this. Yes I can try the screen cast as I do with other stuff on my phone but it's not ideal and unlikely to be hi res.

 

I think it's going back, other brands all offer multiple connectivity, as I believe this should. Looking at the Olympus.

 

Thanks again

Rob

Re: Connectivity

Why though does the content not show up using USB?  The TV sees the Hero, the folders up until the files and then they don't show. It's MP4? This makes me think that it's enginered to need to upgrade to the Black.
