Lately if the unit has been left on in screen saver mode, you can forget about getting through an entire movie. The casing feels pretty hot and videos will stutter with the audio being completely dropped. The condition takes place regardless of what connection type I use, wired or wireless. File formats do not seem to play any role, as once it starts to happen, it does it for all files.
I’ve switched out all involved equipment and tried numerous little things, with the only successful result coming from a fan directed at the unit. You can feel the heat being blown out the other side of the unit.
After a minute of being fanned, the unit is fairly cool and operates without further issue.

Pretty sure I have had the unit beyond it’s initial warranty period, so I may be left with modding the unit to provide additional cooling.
