How to keep screen on with HDMI connected

Hi,

I'm in a situation (live stream) where it's connected to HDMI, but I need the screen to show what I am filming.

Is this possible?

Now the screen goes black when you connect to HDMI....

Thank you in advance!

Oh and it's a Hero 8. Sorry, I can't seem to edit my original post.

Re: How to keep screen on with HDMI connected

No, once you connect the HDMI it disables the onboard LCD display.  This is to stop the camera from overheating as it processes the video out.  

You could always pick up a HDMI duplicator and connect to a secondary monitor, that way you would have a mirror of what you are recording.
