Help! Blue flicker when connecting MBP to TV with HDMI

Hi, I have been trying to connect my MBP to a Panasonic 42" TV with a Monoprice Mini DVI to HDMI cable. I use the headphone jack for audio and the audio is working well. I can get a picture and the display preferences shows the Panasonic TV. The picture quality is fine (great actually) but frequently - maybe every 15 sec or so the TV image and MacBook Pro goes blue and comes back after a few flickers - as if there were a loss of signal. Has anyone had a similar issue or can anyone tell me where the problem lies? Is my cable bad? I have an American MBP and a PAL TV (though it is supposed to play NTSC as well). Any help is appreciated. Thanks

First thing to do is unplug the cable (both ends) and plug it back in - even if it looks ok.
That doesn't work, the cable would be my first suspect. But, I'd try your MBP to another TV.I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
