Recently bought, worked flawlessly for first couple weeks, all material played fine. Now Ill start it up, 5 minutes in a movie and screen goes black, the A-TV doesnt turn off, just stops the connection completely to the tv. Only way to restore it is pulling the power cable and restarting it. Sleep mode is at 5 hours and its not powering off, it's just like Im unplugging the HDMI. Any ideas? Other than throw it in the trash, also have the "This content requires HDCP for playback. HDCP isn't supported by your HDMI connection" occasionally.
