I am planning a ‘clean’ (no visible cables) ‘on wall’ installation of a large screen 1080p TV (Panasonic or Sony). The cable run will be almost 10m, and will include 2(or3) hdmi, 3 sets speaker cable, a set of component cables and a Co-Ax Aerial cable. (Power will be separate). I plan to place these all within a conduit to arrive from outside through a wall to the TV. Some concerns I have are as follows .................. 1)Will any of the signals interfere with each other? 2) Could I use an HDMI cable splitter/router box at the component end and route just one long HDMI cable to the TV? Already convinced of the benefit of quality HDMI cable, particularly for a long distance, the cost of two or three 9m/10m cables will be considerable. 3) Why are the HDMI connections on the Sony STR-DA1200ES, which is fairly new, limited to 1080i? I was going to route them all through this AV amp, but routing a 1080p output through it would be pointless, hence the individual cables. 4) I also think that having read some very detailed stuff about 1080i vs 1080p that most viewers will not be able to tell the difference, any comments? Thanks

You should be okay, it's power you should keep separate.

I guess so.

Unfortunately short sightedness/ couldn't be bothered on Sony's part.

What size screen are you after? 1080p is worth it on a 50", 46" possibly, below that pointless. Some sources look better at 1080p, some at 1080i or720p. suck it and see.

Personally I would ditch the amp and get one that can switch 1080p, and upscale too. So much easier for integration. How much are you going to pay for a couple of runs of good quality 10m HDMI cable?

EDIT:::::Just looked and your amp should switch 1080p after all.
