I recently got myself a HTPC system.

This is my setup:

ASUS P8H77-M PRO Corsair 4 GB DDR3-1600 Kit Intel Core™ i3-2120 Intel SSD 80gb OEM SATA DVD burner

I'm running Ubuntu 12.04. I have this system hooked up to my TV through an HDMI cable. The problem I have is that the sound drops for a second at completely random intervals. It does this in every program, be it XBMC, VLC, firefox (youtube vids) or rythmbox.

I have googled quite a bit but could not find anybody with a similar problem. Does anybody know a solution for this? I love Ubuntu, I don't have any windows PC's in my house any more, it would be a shame if I would have to change this system because of this problem
