HD Hero (1) + Wifi Remote

Postby FixB » Sun Jan 26, 2014 7:08 am

Hi all!

I just bought a wifi remote to go with my original GoPro HD Hero.
I know I won't be able to use the smartphone app, but I should be able to use the remote (as far as I understood what is stated on gopro website).
I upgraded my GoPro firmware with the last one (I hope?) which is dedicated to the HD1 Wifi compatibility : HD1.01.01.102
But the remote is not working :(
The remote keep swapping between '1 Cam' and 'No Cam'... and I can't get it to do anything on the cam :( :(
I tried to connect them, following the user guide section dedicated to the HD1, but - again - it does not work : the remote and the gopro display that they are 'searching', but to no avail.

Any help would be really appreciated!

was it just the remote and nothing else?

To use the Wifi remote, you also need the wifi bacpac.

Sorry: I was not enough precise in my first post. I bought the combo : wifi bacpac + remote.
As nothing was working, I tried to upgraded the firmware of my original HD Hero : does not work better.
I then upgraded the bacpac firmware : not better.
I find no tips or how-to dedicated to the original HD Hero with this. It's really annoying to buy products that state they are working together, when they are not :(
