Sounds like heat issue. Do you have it WELL ventilated and/or out in the open?

Can you access the menu when it freezes?
If so, check your signal strength on that transponder.

Last month I had to replace 5 722's because they would freeze up or they would not boot up just fans running. Only 1 722 so far this month and this one was because of a software update that made the receiver quit running.
