My final conclusion is that 126.96.36.199 is problematic, because I did hear annoying buzzing sounds as I was editing so I thought it was the sound card. Others have reported problems with 188.8.131.52 and squeeling noise and since my major problems (Constant rebooting) on the same day I updated I have to presume that it's the driver problem.
In summary I'm concluding Firmware 1.4 is fine, but latest driver 184.108.40.206 is not safe on my system so I'm going back to 220.127.116.11, until another update is out.

Yes I do think it is the new driver. For some reason my unit tends to automatically enable +18db which is quite annoying as i have to keep disabling it. I did also experience one freeze on my hd500 when connected via usb, but it restarted successfuly and all is well. I was quite concerned as mine is only a month old and the last thing i want is having the hardware fail. I find it odd that so many pods have this restart issue.

Never had a single problem when the POD operated on it's own without being connected to a computer, so I'm happy with that and I realize that line 6 will further upgrade these units and reslove most if not all known issues. When you deal with computers, it's no surprise that hardware sometimes fail when connected to them...If you have your machine, like many, connected to the computer for anything, you need to frequent these forums beause it's obvious these pods were designed well with recovery options in case of failure and this is the place to find these solutions...

Thanks for that fix mate. I have just been using my HD500 and it went into this startup loop rendering it unusable. I would never have thought of pressing that button on power up. I assumed it was a dicky power supply. I'm using a mac so I'm guessing the operating system is nothing to do with the problem since you're on a PC.
