[Hero 8 Black] No audio until unplug/plug ext mic in with ext power[ New ]
Seen the issue mentioned plenty on these forums, but nothing about the inclusion of an external power supply. New camera, did the manual update after a few uses discovering the issue of having to unplug and plug back in the external mic to get any audio, and I'm at v2.0.
I run a motovlog setup that I started with the Hero 7 Black. External mic and external power bank. The 8 works better than the 7 because I can leave the battery inserted. Anyway, after a manual update (to be sure, was already at v2.0), everything works fine without unplugging the external mic as long as the power bank isn't connected. I can connect the power bank after starting up and it stays fine until turned off again. But if I leave the mic and power bank connected and turn the camera on, the Audio input reads N/A until I unplug either the mic or power bank and plug it back in.
Really annoying. Anybody got a fix for this? @GoPro?
