Hero8 Quickstart in Timewarp instead Video after battery change

So this is getting a problem:
I use Quickstart A LOT during my mountain bike runs to start recording Video, and I DON'T WANT Timewarp. 

 

But after a battery change Quickstart starts automatically in Timewarp mode, even if I press the record button only briefly. This is clearly a BUG, because it's supposed to do Timewarp only if the record button is pressed for more than 3 sec. My workaround: after a battery change start recording, stop, wait, and then start again .... annoying

 

Another issue: Hypersmooth utterly failed now twice in the middle of a recording og my bike ride, video shaking was even worse than without it. And I have no idea why ... how can I get this more reliable?

Re: Hero8 Quickstart in Timewarp instead Video after battery change

Hello. Yes, I noticed that if my camera has been freezed then I had timewarp after resetting. So, I advice you to turn on the camera first after the battery replacement. Just turn it on, then turn off. and the quick capture will work fine since that

Re: Hero8 Quickstart in Timewarp instead Video after battery change

Yes, that's exactly my workaround. But it really is a pain to figure this out the hard way (loosing footage) and takes extra valuable time. I need to swap battery "on the fly" while I am biking. This seems to be an easy problem to fix, it would be nice if GoPro is making quality and reliability a Priority!
