Re: GoPro Hero 9 Scheduled Capture Issues

[ New ]

Just carried out a second test.  Set a schedule at 10am for a 12pm start.

 

GoPro powered on at 12pm, beeped, and recording not started.

So better in that it doesn't drain the battery, but absoluetly useless if recording doesn't start.

 

I had manually updated to v1.50 and performed a full factory reset.

Carrying out a timelapse test at 2pm, not holding out much hope.

Last test was standard video recording.

I've had a succesful result!

 

I scheduled a NightLapse video timelapse around 11pm to start shooting at 7am.

Narrow lens, 10 second interval, 3 hour duration.

I didn't hit record, just let the camera power off by itself hoping it would record.

 

I checked it this morning and the battery was fully dead but it did have a 25 second long timelapse video on the card.

If you got it to work, how did you update your GP?  Via app, manual, manual with a factory reset? 

 

It's so strange that we have to jump through these hoops.  Why would to tell your customers as you power via the app to update your GP when they know some of the updates may not work.  

 

So is the answer: pull the battery, factory reset, stand on your head, update the app with a sony card only, set the scheduled capture DO NOT POWER OFF with the button allow the GP to go to sleep on its own.  Then do not disturb it in any way.  Then it will drain your battery for a short timelapse if you're lucky.  

 

I am being funny but the YouTube review is coming....

Well...after all this time...mine worked...precisely as scheduled. 

I updated via app, scheduled at 8pm yesterday for a 5:30 am start. 2 hour duration. Did exactly what I set.

I updated via the app, then set it up as outlined above. Will be trying again tomorrow!
