    If you are in the Xbox One beta preview you may end up with a console stuck in an endless boot loop which is caused by Audio settings conflicting with the beta update!
    If you are affected by this issue don't panic because we have the fix right here that was released by a Microsoft developer:

    Reported Update Issue
    We have received some reports of participants encountering an issue with installing this update. The issue being reported is that some consoles get stuck in a loop trying to install the update, or some are hanging at a black screen during the update. This issue has occurred with consoles that are configured with optical audio enabled, and is caused by an invalid audio setting being configured during the update process. If you encounter this issue, please follow the steps below as a workaround. The developers are investigating a fix for this issue occurring during system updates.
    1. Unplug the network cable or disable the wireless network and start up your console.
    2. If the update screen is not displaying, disconnect and reconnect the HDMI cable until update screen appears.
    3. At update screen, select Cancel. (Cancel only appears when network is disconnected.)
    4. Go to Settings > Display & Sound.
    5. Switch HDMI Audio and Optical Audio to Stereo Uncompressed.
    6. Plug the network cable back in, or re-enable your wireless network, and connect your console to the network.
    7. The update screen should now appear and update should proceed successfully.
    Have you been affected by this issue and if so did you fix it the same way as we mentioned here? Let us know in the comments below.
