Does the Hero 8 work with the Mic Adapter dongle?

If so has anyone experienced issues with it like we had on the 7?  i.e. recording out of sync when using a external power supply.

The HERO8 Black is compatible with the Mic Adapter. I haven't heard of any sync issues.

My Mic adapter no longer works with my hero 8. It still works with my hero 7 perfectly.

No I do not. I updated the unit just recently. That's when it stopped working.

Can you try to update your camera again manually @niktip,

Visit that website and the instruction for manual firmware update is on the other link or inside the update page.
