Smart Remote w/ HDMI output

Can I use my Smart Remote to record with my GoPro while it is plugged into an HDMI output? We have it hooked up to go into our video system at church (for our baptistry), but we want to be able to remotely record with it.

Re: Smart Remote w/ HDMI output

Hello @bluewater5486,

 

The strange icon you are referring to might be the icon for display.  You should be able to record wile the cameras are connected to the TV. Which HDMI output is your camera set to? Try this. Set the camera to Media. Preferences > HDMI Output > Media

You will be able to see an icon for a camera on top (of display). Navigate to the icons through the Mode button on the Smart remote control, then select the camera icon using the Shutter button on the remote. 

Make sure that the mode displayed on the camera is Video, then navigate to the upper left portion of the screen to highlight Record. Press the Shutter button to start and stop recording. 

Hope this helps. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius

Hi @bluewater5486

 

If you can pair the remote yes you can. 

Also it won't work when submerged to water.

Re: Smart Remote w/ HDMI output

I can get it to pair, but as soon as I plug in HDMI, the remote gives me a strange icon and seems to not allow me to do anything else.
