The screen on my Hero 7 Black is blank with HDMI plugged in and makes it completely useless

When I plug my Hero 7 into my TV via HDMI I can not navigate anything because the screen goes blank and renders the $400 annoying little gadget usless.

Hi yeahok1970.

Did they give you any answer at all? I'm having the same problem, no matter if I choose Media, Monitor or Live in Preferences > Input/Output > HDMI Output, the display goes black when connected with an HDMI cable.

Unbelievable for such a highly recommended product.

Regards!
