Default tivoli problem?

Hi, I am new to sirius and I just want to say that I really am enjoying this. I do have a problem and was wondering if anyone out there could help me ? I purchased the new tivoli satellite radio and I just love it-GREAT sound. This is my problem: I am getting the full 10 bars on sat reception and I can paly the radio for about 20 minutes- give or take a few. After that all I get is acquiring signal and it stays like that- tried repositioning antennna-it is outside-nothing. If I turn radio off for about 10 min and turn it back on I get the full 10 bars sat and plays great -for about 20 min and then acquiring signal. I cannot get reception unless I turn off for awhile and turn back on. Does this sound like an internal problem with the radio itself? Thanks for any suggestions-any would be appreciated,

Sounds like it is overheating. That would explain why if you let it sit for 10 mins, means it cools down. Then once you turn it back on after 20 mins it overheats.

If it always does this at precisely 10 minutes and you know your antenna placement outdoors is unobstructed, then I'd suggest you swap this unit out.
