You should only need to separate data cables from 230 volt cables.

AFAIK you can run all the data cables together, but make sure you separate the data cables and power cables.

Oh of course. i was just referring to the rg6 cat5e hdmi themselves. my speaker wires are run in 25mm conduits as we won't be able to access the lounge ceiling once the Gib is on.
so i have 4xcat5, 3x rg6, 2x hdmi, 1x toslink and 2 general purpose 4 core screened cables and then the left/center/right speaker cables....not much room for insulation!

You only need separation between extra-low voltage cables (data, audio, video etc) and low voltage (240V) cabling

Keep the HDMI away from anything running RF, as they tend to radiate quite a lot of crap that may cause issues on the RF stuff even with all the shielding on the RG6.
