I've had my Hdr-Fox2 since Dec 2010 and until a year ago it behaved impeccably. Then, following an upgrade to the custom firmware (probably a coincidence) it started occasionaly losing comms on the HDMI output - sometimes on picture, sometimes sound, sometimes both (it is connected to a Samsung LE37R8). In those conditions, output to scart and on the optical audio continued. If HDMI sound was lost it generally came back spontaneously, but if the picture was lost, it required a hard reset (switch at the back) to get it back. Having been stable with just the occasional problem for a year, it has suddenly become much worse, and over the last 2 weeks or so the loss of picture on HDMI has become the norm - some evenings it goes every 10 mins or so, and worse; the box does not boot up properly after a hard reset. It goes through the software loading process, then the front panel lights up with "Crash please wait". It then power cycles and does the same thing again and again in an endless loop. Normally keeping it turned off for 10 minutes before switching back on cures it. That sounds like an overheating problem to me; and I note that it has been worse since I have had it set to auto-decrypt (in the small hours only) and to run Samba. I suspect that some components have aged (capacitors?) or dry joints are showing up as a result of temperature cycling. Until this week I had never lost a recording though - but on Sunday, for the first time I got a zero length recording Has anyone come across a similar set of problems? Would the box still be under warranty? - I can't find my receipt.
