Generally most home owners do not concern themselves with that rating. If you are doing new construction that would be inspected, you might be asked to supply such documentation if it is not stamped on the cable. HDMI cables carry 5 volts DC as I recall so that is not much. The rating has more to do with flamabilty of the jacket material and if you have enough of a fire to where that cable is giving off noxious fumes, you might well have a serious situation on your hands anyway. Schools and hospitals often use plenum rated cables. These are the least likely to give off harmful fumes that might travel through the air ducts of a building and harm lots of people.


I did check the link you provided and I saw no indication on there for the cable being in wall rated so I doubt it is.
