Hi,
Trying to do anything in the menu, or just navigate through video files - the unit keeps doing a double beep then exiting out of the menu. It is very frustrating. Even just pressing the button to pull up the menu, it will double beep and exit very quickly by itself before I have a chance to do anything.

v1.10

thank you

Auto Restart = OFF
(btw, what is this really doing? the manual isn't crystal clear).

Too many ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
the auto restart function is to restart the camera if it's not recording, card problem, you've entered the menu and forgot etc, the default setting is 1 minute, if no recording or left in the menu for one minute and not doing anything the camera will restart and commence recording again, the OFF setting is something we sometimes need to use in testing but realistically it's not the best choice for normal use, better to have the auto restart working as intended

would probably suggest reloading the firmware as a starting point and see if you still have issues with it kicking you out of the menu, can download the firmware here https://bit.ly/SG9663DRfirmwareV1-10

I have set Auto Restart to 1 minute just to start with. Interestingly, it started to behave fine straight after changing it. So I changed it back to OFF but didn't start to misbehave.

It is set to 1 minute. I was just trying to see if I could recreate the problem.
