Windows 7: HDTV as second monitor turns black during the movie

HDTV as second monitor turns black during the movie

Hello everyone,while I'm waiting for answer/s on my previous thread about errors in my energy report I decided to ask a question about another issue that bothers me for some time.In fact, I using Toshiba HDTV model L2433 as a second monitor connected via an HDMI cable with my pc, and each time while watching the movie, screen occasionally turns black for 2-4 seconds, the sound can still be heard and image turn back again, it happens several times during the movie. Im usually using a Pot player but with any another player situation is the same. All my drivers are up to date.Now, I know that it is possible that this is a HDMI cable (made in china ) problem.These days I don't have funds to buy higher quality cable, but I wonder,perhaps,if it comes to be something else,some software problem or maybe my bad setup of something
Thank you all for reading.Regards

Are you talking about dvd movies or movies you`ve downloaded ?

You could rule out software by trying VLC, it is very very good.
