Hero 5 Black Charging & HDMI output

I need to output via HDMI at the same time as charging the camera with the USB cable, but the screen just says 'USB connected'. Is there a setting I need to change to allow the HDMI output whilst plugged in to charge?

Thanks.

Hello @robtaylor2310

 

How were you charging the camera? Have you tried directly connecting the camera to a power source? Let us know how it goes. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius
