Sumvision Cyclone Primus V2

Sup Guys purchased a Primus v2 for my dad for xmas added a 750GB HDD
Added films all file types from MP4 to AVI MKV
90% of the films play for about 30 minutes then just cut out and start playing again.
Any ideas please ?
Cant find Firmware anywhere is running Version 2.3 at the moment.

What are the 10% of films that do play without cutting out ?

Find out the difference.

Yes - if the same 10% consistently play all the way through, that suggests a type of encoding that it doesn't like.

Failing that, maybe it's overheating after 20mins ? Try standing the unit on its edge ? (And maybe the 1080 films play OK but not 720 ?)

And how is it using an external USB memory stick ? Exactly the same ?

As an aside, I find YIFY stuff very good - perfect encodes, small files, stereo, choice of 720/1080.
