    Hello!
    The other day my X7 mini was a little slow, so I did a reboot. After that, I do not have any HDMI output (TV says "No signal")! :cry:

    I tried a different cable and a different screen - still nothing.

    I tried flashing the firmware - still nothing.

    Since I can flash the firmware it seems lite the device is working, just not the HDMI output? Has someone else encountered this? Any tips?

    Yes! After flashing the firmware several times without improvement, I finally took the device apart to look for a physical issue. I did not find one but when I connected the power again the blue LED and the red light in the optical port suddenly came on again. I did not realize it before, but they were not coming on when it was in the "faulty state". There were no issues with the board that I could see so probably opening it up was not what fixed it, rather just power cycling it until it came back. Seems like a low-level software bug or possibly a bad connection in the power connector?

    I have noticed, red light is not turning on from optical port but before it was turn on. It mean device have hardware issue.
    There everything okay with device firmware.
