What width is standard electrical conduit used in homes?  I've got to purchase a HDMI cable to be fed up about a metre of white electrical conduit from under a fireplace to above where the TV rests.

I need to make sure that the HDMI cable can be fed up through.

I thought the diameter was 20mm, but I can't be sure - does anyone know?

I was thinking of getting one of these items if it would work: />
Although from google, i'm not sure that that particular cable is available here yet.  I should also add that there is a power lead and potenitally a coax cable in the conduit as well, but the coax is to be replaced by the HDMI - no point putting in HD capability and leaving the feed as coax.

Thanks.

You quote a thin cable there but that does not matter, it is the connectors that set the marker as they are the thing you have to feed up. I found the cable with the smallest connector casing when I did mine.
The max length of hdmi is 12m as I have now found out.


You can get mini hdmi connectors on tablets or similar these days, I guess one of those would be good if you can get a convertor or even if you cab get on longer than 250mm which I doubt but you never know.

Hi,

The connectors quoted are quite thin compared to std HDMI connectors.  In the link the connector has 15mm x 5mm cross section.  For my purpose the thickness of the cable is secondary.

I did look at using a HDMI to micro HDMI (Type D) cable with and adaptor on one end but thought the above would be a neater solution rather than using a connector.  However, it seems difficult to obtain this in the UK, so this may be the only option.
