Are you using the power supply that came with the HD500? The fact that it's getting warm doesn't necessarily mean anything other than that with the Variax attached it's supplying a higher current. But you shouldn't be experiencing reboots even with the Variax attached.

the xt and hd power supplies are very very different.....
xt is AC
hd is DC
the xt was region specific as well... meaning a different PSU was needed in the UK vs the USA etc
the hd PSU is universal and converts different voltages internally.
i'm not the least bit surprised that they would exhibit a difference between the 2.
