Setup is frozen at auto detect display

I start the setup and get past the language preference and wifi setup and it goes into firmware update mode and restarts the device. It gets to the next step, auto detect display and freezes. Whats the work around  or do I have a faulty device?

Re: Setup is frozen

Do you have another tv you can try this on?  If it works there, try setting Settings > Display type to the actual resolution of the first tv, not the "auto" setting.  If you see a countdown screen click on the Yes button. Now try it back on the original tv.

If no other tv, try a different HDMI port if there is one.
