Hi, recently, I've bought an HDMI cable for my Xbox 360. So far, I've been loving the better quality of the cable however it comes with a problem, when I'm on the Xbox, randomly the screen goes black and the sound turns off (at the same time). Though it's random, i'd say that it mostly happens every 5-10 minutes. Here's a video to show you what I mean:
I would like to know what is causing the problem and if there is a fix. I really hope it's not the TV, though there's a good chance it is. The TV is probably somewhere around 5-7 years old so it's not the newest TV but it's not to old either. I'm sure I have everything hooked up correctly and I wired and rewired everything multiple times but the problems persist. The reason I bought a HDMI cable is because I want to get a gaming PC however I have to wait a while to see if I really want to spend the money on it and I wanted anything to make the console graphics quality better. I still am shooting for the PC, but now I want to get this cable situation settled out. If it is in fact the TV, do you think I should invest in a new one or save my money for the PC. If I get one I may get this:

Sounds like bad cable. I'd try getting another one.
