Streaming GoPro H7B regularly switches views and/or powers off[ New ]
GoPro H7B continuously turns off and/or switches view to Wide while streaming! Unit has latest firmware, and settings as follows:
Low light off
ISO min/max 100/1600
Raw audio off
Mic auto (using external mics)
The H7B has NO battery and NO card installed. Fail rates were higher with either of these installed. Unit is set up for livestream from a fixed mount, a/c power, and tethered to a new 2019 MBP via CamLink4k, all quality cables. Using either FB live or Zoom to stream.
Unit starts acting up any time between 0-75min. Streams are never longer than 2hrs. No warnings or notifications other than the unit beeping and/or powering off.
GoPro techincal assistance blamed my memory cards, now that they're removed, the unit continues to be problematic.
Need a HIGHLY RELIABLE video feed for streaming, and these units do not deliver. I'm shopping other solutions, but would like to know if others have experienced this frustration.

If you haven't yet, see if re-flashing the software will help.
Please follow the manual update steps on https://gopro.com/en/us/update/hero7-black
Can you also share the brand, model and capacity of the SD card/s you have used?
Do you also observe the same, when the camera is recording on its own?
Try to do a long recording while the camera(without the battery) is plugged in to a power source.
Let us know how it goes.
