My Mobius is having a very short on time on home recording over a table .. and it seems heat related.

If you put it to record .. after less than 5m the yellow light gets fixed and its not recording and the video file is lost.. you can turn it off and on again and record again.. and it seems quite warm.. not very (can touch without problem) but more than warm

however if you blow air over it it works much longer.. the heatsink is hot..so it seems its making proper contact with the board or otherwise it wouldnt get hot.. i tought it would be a battery issue.. but swaped in a brand new 800 (original is also 800) battery with same results..

Since heat related, sounds like broken/poor solder joint somewhere... could be anywhere. I would reseat the lens cable first off, but you might need freeze spray to troubleshoot the board with all guts out of the chassis. Not much help as all this is common for this kind of problem.

You may have missed my point. If you have a separate card for each of your favorite settings with the config file on each one with it's "read only" flag set, you can change to any of those settings over and over in the field without a computer or phone APP by simply inserting the card and writing the config to the camera. It's not as flexible as a phone App where you can mix and match settings, but if you only have 2 or three settings that you normally use, it's a fast and easy way to change settings in the field if you don't have a phone/App.

Yes, I missed your point of using multiple cards, and yes, I didn't consider it. However, the app is way easier and more flexible... besides, I don't have that many cards, much less want to label each one for different settings, or two or three, etc settings. Of course, I could just bring my laptop along on my trips, but that too is less convenient than the app on my phone.
