Knox RS 16X16 HB "re-setting"

Hi all,

Have a knox RS 16 HB switcher that intermittently re-sets itself (briefly seems to turn on and off). The settings / routes return as previously set, but it causes all 3 broadcast channels to go black for a second.

I am thinking the power supply is going. My partner here suggested that the Knox has a button battery that might be going bad - but I don't think it would then save the settings.

The problem actually began as an occasional re-set when you entered a manual swith on the front panel. Now it is doing it on the hour or so, then stops for a while - then continues. Disconnecting serial control has no affect.

perhaps it's time for a new router.

This is an analog router, correct ? You can get a Kramer 16x16 for about 3 grand, that will be more reliable than the Knox.
If you were SDI (which I guess you are not), you could choose from the wonderful Blackmagic or AJA family, for the same price.
