Gopro Hero 8 Media Mod HDMI out disable OSD (Battery meter and Recording time)

[ Edited ]

We just received the Media Mod for our Hero 8 Gopro. When the hdmi cable is connected the battery meter and recording time left is displayed on the hdmi output. I cannot find a on screen display (OSD) button or function to disable it. Is this a bug or is the option just hidden very well. We cant stream out of the Gopro with those in the view

Hi @sprystorm60232

 

Connect your camera to your TV/Monitor.

Once the camera's view is displayed toggle through the icons using the Mode button.

 

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!

If you set camera to timewarp mode it will remove the OSD but obviously changes the view mode

Hello @bradj87

 

While on the live view, toggle to the last icon (looks like an eye) by pressing the mode button a few times.

Press the shutter button to select the icon. 

You can turn it back on through the mode button.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!

I would need a bit more help in finding the "live view".

 

Cheers,

Andreas.

Thanks, not OP but it works. Make sure once the mode is selected you press down on the record button (highlighting it is not enough). I can confirm that the battery icon, and the "no sd card" one disappear.
