    Overrun errors are normally a result of the CPU being not being able to service the COM port interrupt quick enough. So the FIFO buffer overflows.

    This is more common when the CPU is slow, the serial port is being run at high speed and / or there is some other background activity occurring. Which fits your situation.

    See these past posts for further information and suggestions.
