ATEM Mini Pro with GoPro 7 Hero Black - HDMI fail

PostThu May 28, 2020 3:56 pm

I got my new ATEM Mini Pro yesterday. I tested the device with three cameras; a Canon XF400 and 2 Go Pro 7 Hero Black devices. I connected a GoPro to the ATEM HDMI port 1, the Canon XF400 to port 2, and another GoPro to port 3.

The three devices seemed to work perfectly except when I tried to power on the GoPro in port 1 while the HDMI cable is connected - the HDMI of the device fails to start; I have to unplug the HDMI cable and plug it back in for the device to come to life on the ATEM.

I did many different tests trying to different adapters, cables, and camera settings. Finally I realized that the issue follows the port 1 only. I have now come to the realization that port 1 on the ATEM does not allow the GoPro HDMI to start while it is plugged in. The issue does not occur with my Canon XF400 only with GoPros.

Has anyone else seen this issue? Does anyone know of a setting in the ATEM that may change the startup behavior of a HDMI connected device.

OK here is the direct stated issue: When a GoPro 7 Hero Black is plugging into the HDMI port 1 of the ATEM mini pro and then powered on the HDMI does not start on the ATEM until the device is unplugged from the HDMI cable and then reconnected.

GoPro cameras are very problematic on BMD equipment.

Glad you got it sorted, cables are always the first thing to check, when you have a connection issue.

I had a problem with the initial connection of my (4) GoPro Hero 7 Black cameras to my ATEM Mini Pro. I bought four Startech 5 meter HDMI to HDMI micro cables and the first cable didn't work and I tried it numerous times with the other three cameras, wiggled the ends of the cord etc. It just would not work. After finding this post, I then tried another cable and it worked. In sum: one of the four 16 foot HDMI cables did not work. Confirming what other responders in this post mentioned. I much prefer just getting another cable versus getting four $150 DR-HDMI adapter boxes - which is what I thought I would have to do when I first started researching the camera one issue! Whew! (knock on wood : - )
