Just because a camera records at 4k it doesn't mean that it automatically has 4k HDMI output.
I'm guessing that theres going to be a big difference between what Gopro expect the HDMI output to be used for (checking your shots at the end of the day when on a trip and edit them when you are back home) and what some users want from the HDMI port (connect the Gopro to the T and use it as a a player to show everyone the 4k video you've taken. Or using the small format of the Hero 8 to get the camera into a tight space but bringing the HDMI out into an external recorder - possible recording at a higher bitrate or into a different codec)

Media Mod output details:
Connecting to a Big Screen with an HDMI Cable
Media Mod has a micro-HDMI port that lets you connect your HERO8 Black to an HDTV. You’ll be able to see your photos and videos on the big screen or to use it to preview your shot. Plug a micro-HDMI cable (sold separately) into your Media Mod, and then choose an HDMI setting in your camera’s Preferences menu.

- Tap Preferences > Input/Output > HDMI Output.
- Scroll through the options on the right and choose the one you want.

I just received my media mod and I instantly tried to connect it to an external monitor, but I just doesn't work. At one point a little bit of the user interface appeared on the screen, but only for a few seconds. I tried several hdmi cables and also two different camera monitors. Its not working at all.
I updated my Hero 8 to the latest software and I'm using a original GoPro battery.
The onyl thing that happens is, that the display on the back of the gorpo keeps going on and off every few seconds, sporadically.
What can I do? Any Ideas?
