hero 9 how to turn off screens when recording

[ New ]

I see there is a way to turn of front screen permantly.   But is there a way to turn off the back screen when recording?   If it is mounted on a tripod, I can save battery and not use back screen either.    

 

I tried to set screen saver 1 minute and set recording to start 3 minutes later.   Screen turned off, but when recording started, the screen turned back on.   Please let me know if this is possible.  

 

thanks!

Ignore my last comment - I misread the front screen bit

Goto front screen settings (pull down from the top and it'll be the little square box with an "up" arrow

Select that then select what you want the front screen to do 🙂

The screen turns on when you start recording anyway which is normal and if you set the screen to turn off after one minute, it will continue to do that until you change it, so once it starts recording it will automatically turn off after one minute as per usual
