my utv unit works fine except for the fact it will go ivac after no set time but usually will stay on for a day then crap out around 1:30 pm till 4p.m.. the wierd part about it is all i have to do is pull the card out a lil bit then put it back in and it is good for another day or an hour there s really no telling. any help or suggestions i would really appreciate. thanks

Hey man did you try putting a small pc fan in the back and keeping it cool maybe that might be an issue cause when you pull the cord you might be letting whatever heats up cool down just a thought .

Alright i have the same problem it seems to have something to do with the power when i turn my tv off or on i gives me the error message "your access card has expired please insert your new access card" then i just pull the card out and put it back in and voilat it works just fine, verry wierd I'm in the process of isolating the problem as we speak. will keep you posted when i find something.

sorry to say but i am not the only one with this problem. i tried the fan and i still have the same problem. i was thinking about putting a larger harddrive to increase my recording capabilities. i was just wondering if anyone thinks that will correct the problem.

Did you try cleaning the contacts on the card with a soft eraser? sounds like bad/dirty connections
