Hero 8 + Media Mod: how to keep the camera back screen on with HDMI cable connected

[ New ]

I need to see what I am recording while I am streaming video using a long HDMI cable and an Elgato Cam Link. When I connect the HDMI cable to the media mod, the back screen shuts off (blank), how can I keep it on?

Hello @lucatrv. The camera's touch LCD display will eventually go blank once the camera is connected to HDTV monitor or broadcasting product (i.e. converter, switcher, HDMI recorder, etc.). This applies to all GoPro cameras with HDMI functionality.
