Here's my situation:
I'm retro-fitting RG-6 coax and Cat-5e wiring throughout my house. I'm running two Quad-shielded RG-6 cables and two Cat-5e's at each drop.
The master bedroom is the toughest wire run. I have to drop it down a 10 foot wall with at least two fire breaks. I have cut into the dry wall and drilled through the first fire break stud.
However, I misjudged the second fire break 2X4 stud and cut into the drywall too high above the stud.
I was able to negotiate the fish tape through a hole already drilled through the stud through which two romex cables are passing.
So finally, here's my question:
I know that running video cables (?cat-5e) along side romex (power) cables may introduce video interference. The cable would only run side-by-side with the romex through the 2X4 stud (approx. 2 inches or slightly more).
Since I'm using quad-shielded coax can I just leave things the way they are?
Or should I cut another hole (ugh!!!) in my wall to drill a new hole through the second fire-break stud in order to avoid the romex completely?
I'm also not sure what this may do as far as the Cat-5e wires are concerned. I'm not even sure if I will use the cat-5 but while I was crazy enough to take on this task, I figured I might as well run them along with the coax. I definitely don't want to do this again.
Thanks in advance for any help
