    The missus fancies watching QVC and other stuff that should be banned on the grounds of spousal wallet abuse all around the house :( so to keep her happy i'm thinking of getting a loft aerial and running the cable down to the ground floor but the only place to run it is through the old airing cupboard where the wires come up from the fuseboard and my question is that if i ran the cables using RG6 cable past the big bunch of cables from the CU would there be any interference problems with the TV signal or any breaking of rules like there is when segregating power and data using cat 5/6 cables?

    Mains and signal wires must be 50mm apart, but can cross at 90 degrees.
