Hero 6 Audio Sync External Mic



My Hero 6 black is consistently recording unsynced audio - using an external mic (Rode VideoMicro Compact On Camera Microphone) connected via the 3.5mm adapter (genuine).


Audio is consistently 3 frames before video shooting in 4k at 25 fps. 


Setting is "Standard" and ProTune is on and audio processing is "low" and "stereo only"  - changing this around does not change behaviour


Changing SD cards does not change it I'm using a Lexar Professional 1000x 64GB microSDXC UHS-II Card - also doesn't work with other SD cards. 


Tried plugging in after starting recording - same behaviour


No problems with sync on internal mic.


Bit of a pain moving the audio 3 frames in post every time - any solution?
