This is the same thermal problem that was discussed a few days ago. There 
a very easy hardware fix that solves it completely. Basically, when the 
gets hot, Undo sometimes executes the record function. If you do the
hardware mod, the echoplex can run at much higher temperatures without
problems. I don't have time to explain it again now, but look back to posts
from last week for the info. Matthias even posted a nice jpeg showing how 
do the mod!
