XBox One Blacks Out For a Few Seconds Then Returns

The other day I’m playing the cool Zombie game Dying Light and just as I was about to be attacked by two zombies, my screen goes black for about 2-3 seconds then comes back on (I could still hear audio). As you can imagine the zombies won that round. After a couple weeks of trying different trouble-shooting methods like hard shut downs, swapping HDMI ports and changing some screen settings the problem would return after a couple days. I finally figured out that it was the HDMI cables between my DirecTV box and Receiver.

So basically the way to fix it is to make sure you have good quality HDMI cables between all devices. You might even have to replace the one that came with the XBox, not sure, but I swapped everything and never had the problem again.
