Hero8 switches off when using live view through HDMI on MediaMod

If using Hero8 through HDMI from MediaMod, after a few minutes the GoPro switches off - how do I stop that from happening when using the live view.

Hi @zippyalp75378

 

Your camera’s touch display will go blank, but will still respond to touches and swipes.

See Introducing the Media Mod for HERO8 Black for reference.

 

Thanks!

I get that the screen goes off. I mean it just powers off after 15-20 mins.

Is there setting somewhere to change this?

Hi @zippyalp75378

 

Is it just the screen or is it the camera that goes off completely?

Have you tried changing the Auto Power Off option? Preferences> General> Auto Power Off

You may also check Preferences> Touch Screen> Screen Saver

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!
