Got a need for an HDMI cable to run in wall on a newish (already built) house.

There's some convern about the size of the plug and whether it would make it through the wall.  Can HDMI cables be made or it it just  a case of pulling it through...

You can get baluns that allow you to use 2 Cat5 cables to carry the hdmi signal between them.
Here is an example I found

I have routed a hdmi cable through a wall cavity in my house and yes the hole has to be BIG.

Damn they are getting cheap

A HDMI cable will _just_ fit thru a 25mm hole in the nogs, with some sanding of the other 2 corners of the plug down a little. Not the sort of thing you will pull thru, but it should be quite easu to put it thru pre-lining.
