    Slingbox Classic comes on for about 5 minutes then shuts down completely.

      Bought this unit the day it came out.. it has been awesome since!  Just a couple weeks ago I lost video while using it.  Turns out it shutdown due to a failed power supply.  I ordered another one and plugged it in and it worked great, for about 5 minutes... then it shuts down completely.  I then have to let it sit without the power supply plugged in for several minutes before it will come on again for another 5 minutes before shutting down.

       

      I do not want to purchase a new unit right now, does anyone have any ideas on what component on the PCB may be failed so I can replace it?  Any other ideas on what may be wrong?  No burnt or obvious signs of shorts on the PCB.  I miss my Slingbox!  LOL!

       

      Any help is greatly appreciated!
