    Have you tried unplugging the mini from the wall for a few minutes, then restarting?

    I had this happen back when my Minis were only a few weeks old. It seemed like a few minutes got stuck in the buffer on one of the Minis and it kept being played no matter what channel I changed it to. I think a reboot fixed the problem for me. I don't remember for sure. I do remember rebooting everything though and it was fine later. But I have not run into the issue again.

    EDIT: I just looked at my old post, it was back in april when I ran into this issue. A reboot of the Mini did not fix it. It was a reboot of my Elite/XL4 that fixed the problem.
    here is the thread.


    It also happened to someone else and they also had to reboot their XL4 to clear the issue.
