When playing my Xbox, my screen has started to flicker every few minutes. It will cut black for just a few seconds and then come back. I was just wondering if its possible for my HDMI cable to be going bad. My TV doesn't do this when watching normally, only when on my XBox, and that's the only thing I can think of as a possible problem.

Yeah replace HDMI or possibly the 360 might be on the way out. I remember my 360 did something similar when playing before I got my second RROD. It seems unlikely to be the TV as it would do it all the time, so if you replace the HDMI cable and it continues it is probably the 360.
