2 things are happening:

1) The PS3 abruptly cuts out as if there were a power surge, there's a quick 'fuzz' blip and the screen goes black, then everything comes back on in about five seconds or so. This happens mostly while streaming content but has happened while playing dvds as well.

2)while playing video games the picture never cuts out but the sound does. I am now playing an rpg and its gotten to the point where the sound will drop 6 to 8 times in one hour of play. How it comes back on varies--if i switch screens, re-load the game, save the game, still it would be nice not to have it happen at all.

I'm suspicious it might be an HDMI cable issue as i use a really cheap one, but any advice is appreciated.
