Steps to reproduce over heating and it asking me to unplug it and make all the connections again: I just plug it in and try to watch something. Usually when the TV has been on for an hour. It also is really warm when the TV is off.
Sometimes putting it on a plastic bag which is wrapped with a towel cools it down enough for it to work right.
When did this start? As soon as I started using it. I thought I was doing something wrong or it was normal, but my son has one and it doesn't overheat. I tried using the USB port, then switched to the adaptor to see it that made a difference, but no.
