Maybe somebody answered already but...
When A129 Pro beeps which is the difference between fast beeps (at the beginning) and slow beeps (after few seconds) ?

nobody knows, and viofo isn't telling. This is part of the problem.

My guess is that the CPU was busy when it beeped, thus sometimes the interval is short and sometimes its long.

The beep pseudo code is usually as follow (example of double beep)
- play beep audio (1st beep)
- thread wait or while loop
- play beep audio (2nd beep)

So during the "thread wait or while loop", if the CPU happens to be busy (or waiting for some component to finish its work), then it will cause it to be longer, thus slower beeps.

Just curious, do these beeps happen even when key beeps are turned off?
(Don't even know if that is an option, I have new A119v3, where key beeps can be turned off. Haven't heard beeps, thank Goodness.)
