Electrical interfernece: Phone Wire, Cable TV and 12/2 w/g

Are there any issues "pulling" Phone (cat5), Cable TV (Rj6) and 12/2 w/g wires thru the same holes in studs/joists for the wire "runs"? I am running the TV and Phone wire to 2 separate rooms and considering to pull thru same run as my new outlet circuits to the rooms.

Thanks.

For safety reasons you should keep 120V and telephone cables where they are not in contact.

RJ6 will pick up crosstalk the greater the distance is that it is in contact with and parallel to electric cable.

The recommended separation distance is at least 12 inches.

Ok... can't run with electrical.

Can the Cat5 and the Rj6 be run together?

Thanks for the patience fellers. My son and I are learning a lot from this forum.

I'd like to get one more opinion.........

Audio cable (speaker wire). Is it alright to runt that with the phone and cable tv?

Do you have any feedback on these wirelss speaker/surround sound systems I see advertised?

Thanks again and have a good weekend.
