Improvements to video record limits with the firmware update and now it looks as if the November update will also add improvements towards that feature. I feel like I bought the R5 at a very reasonable price for what it is shaping up to be even before it rolls out fully to the public.

You need to watch this video:
Yeah I watched this before I bought mine. I shoot real estate videos for a living and I've had my R6 overheat at every single shoot multiple times sometimes after 15 minutes while recording externally. I am in florida though so I'm sure the warm weather doesn't help.

Once you set overheat control off in order to get clean HDMI output the overheating countdown will start even when you are not recording.

I rented one of these last weekend, and the one thing I didn't think to do was try and make it overheat. I only took about 2 total minutes of video though.

Did I understand this right, its not possible to record in any 4k mode with the R6 without running into an overheat?

Not unless you use an external recorder or record for less than an hour at a time.
I must say I can work around the limitations of the R5. But not beeing able to record 4k reliable for over an hour AT ALL is pretty disturbing.
I guess this emphasizes even more the photography party of the camera than the 6D was at its time.
