    Hi there...

    I had the problem with my SX that after running aprox. 4 hours the unit stops recording or playback some minutes after start. Had this issue for a few months and now i discovered the problem with my unit. It was a thermal problem inside the unit. the SH1 CPU on the M4 board went too hot during operation. So I placed a little silent fan at the M4 board for a better airflow inside the SX.
    After that there were no more problems. I've made a 24h cont. loop test without any issues. the sx never stucked

    So, if you have similar problems with the unit, take a look at the temperature inside the SX. Hope , this post can help
