XLR White Noise

I have a ATEM TV Studio Pro. I was testing today and realized that once I turn on the xlr inputs, I'm getting a white noise.

There is nothing else plugged into the device and the noise only disappears once I turn off the xlr input (from sound and monitor bars).

When I send sound to the xlr inputs, I can only hear the white noise.

The device is on the latest update and everything else works fine. I've send the audio in on a camera but this is not always practical.

Has anyone ever experienced this "problem" or am I missing something?

Did you ever get this resolved? I'm having similar issues. A power cycle usually takes care of it, until the next time...

Interesting development tonight. I thought it was intermittent, but after some testing, I can force it to happen. It only happens after I clip the input. As in it happens as a response to overdriving the input and then wont recover until I power cycle the unit. Is this normal behavior?

Did you ever get this resolved or found a way to prevent it from happening other than an external limiter?

It seems to be repeatable by clipping the input, but it's not too consistent. Sometimes it will be a clap next to the mic that sets it off, sometimes it works fine for a few hours in similar conditions.
