    ...how much of a sin is this?

    It's some normal 2-core power cable going to a pj. I'm wanting to minimise the wiring mess, so the power cable and component cable share the same trucking.

    Any advice? Or is this ok?

    Thanks muchly for any help :)

    If the video cable isn't sufficiently shielded you may get problems, so if you can somehow avoid running them in parallel it would be better. Of course you could just try it out and see how it goes ... :)

    It's a good quality shielded component cable and I'm not seeing a 'bad' picture, but it doesn't look at good as before I ceiling mounted the pj. There could be any number of reasons, this is just one I'm trying to get opinions on :)

    To be honest, I know it may be a problem in theory, but I've never seen or heard of anyone having issues *shrug*.

    I had trouble when my S-Video lead was draped over my extension block but I don't think you'd see much trouble with proper a proper 3-core component lead. :)
