I just did a manual update with no avail I believe GoPro have blocked the use of the mic adapter in favour of the new media mod. Convince me otherwise.

I am lucky I have a Hero 5 that I can use for B-rolls and Audio recording so it just requires me to sync my Hero 8  videos to it. Other users are going to be very pissed indeed.

I have the 8 with the media mod and had bucket loads of problems with it. I hooked my 5 mic adaptor up to it to find out if it was the camera or media mod. It worked perfectly with the adaptor. Done a manual update and the media mod works all be it with a audio lag. To answer your question 8 works with the adaptor better than with the media mod.

It turns out the camera was faulty. I had to send it back to GoPro.
