Hero 6 external rode mic

I have not seen a clear fix presented on this forum. I have a brand new Hero 6, I have manually updated firmware twice and have powered up and started video but no sound! I have the go pro 3.5 adapter and rode microphone.  Can someone provide fix?

 

Thanks

Re: Hero 6 external rode mic

Rode TRRS style mics or lavalier microphones will need a TRRS to TRS Adaptor to properly work with GoPro cameras.

Have you verified that your Mic is not TRRS?
