    Hmm... been searching google and the forums for about 5 minutes and come up with no answers...

    I have a 2.4GHz Aluminium Macbook hooked up to my 40" LCD TV.. via mini displayport -> DVI -> HDMI

    i'm just watching a home movie I created and every 2 minutes the picture cuts out for about 3-4 seconds and then comes bak again... it's really weird.. and it is every 2 minutes..

    The macbook is not closed either... the lid is probably semi closed about 35-45 degree's

    I don't know what could be causing this.. Any ideas please?

    You should also search within this forum:

    Basically, many are experiencing this problem. No fix yet, but hopefully Apple will do something soon.

    EDIT: (new link posted) - search for "external display" in Titles only under the MB thread

    Hi mate..

    I just tried the link you posted and I get this message:

    Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.
    I did however find this thread about a similar issue... i guess the keywords I was searching on were not found before...
