To help out with the speculations on this:

I use my jukebox to timeshift radio. Also, to get an overview over a
stations output I often record full days at 48 kHz/quality setting 5.
I have sucessfully recorded for over 72hours more than one time
using rockbox and a connected power source. I only stopped because that's
all that fits on a DVD-R.

I am pretty sure that there is no power problem here.

Regards
Martin
