Hero 8 turn off internal mike while using microphone adapter

I just got a hero 8. I have been using a hero 5 with mic adapter connected to headphone amp to record audio from mixing board during live performance and it worked great. Using the hero 8 though the internal stays on when using the adapter so I get both live sound and sound from at at the same time. Is there a way to turn off the internal microphone? I just want the audio from the external source.

If you are recording external audio with a headphone amp and external mixer then why bother connecting to camera at all? Just add a external mic and get much better sound then that set up you previously used.

If you're using the Promic adapter,  and worked on your latter model, then it be the same.  Are you certain the Hero 8 audi is showing it Lit up for the selection and not saying N/A.
