cannot connect an external screen by hdmi (solved)

Hello, to all the people who cannot connect an external monitor to the Hero 6 Black, with a DHMI cable, the solution is to turn on the monitor first and then the Hero.

If you the opposite (first the camera and then the monitor) it doesn't work, don't ask me why.

All the best.
