Mine do it rarely and not as severe as you describe. It's been weeks or more like months since I saw it happen. And if I pause again that fixes it.

Sounds like the ViP612 is elderly and not long for this world. They all have old HDDs and electronics.

You can always say a Dingo ate your ViP612. (Consider an H3)
