Question mini/micro hdmi question

I have to wall mount my tv and send my cables through a tube that goes through the wall. the tubes are to small to send regular cables through, so I have to use micro or mini with an adapter. I am looking at cables on monoprice, do the adapters need to say high speed to pass 3d?

Why do you have to run your cables through a tube inside the wall? What is the diameter of this tube?

Well I don't want them hanging out, the diameter is difficult to say cause the wall squeezes it the part that sticks out is wider, a regular hdmi cable doesnt fit. But I'm not asking about that

The only reason I was asking is because I didn't use any kind of tube inside my wall to run cables. That part doesn't make sense to me. I was going to try to help with a (possible) different approach without using the tube. I'm sorry but I can't answer your original question. I would try sending Monoprice an email or giving them a call and see what they have to say about it. Unfortunately it will be Friday at the soonest (and maybe Monday) before you're able to get ahold of anyone now.

They're inside the wall. They go into the wall down low behind my ET stand (out of sight) using one of these. They come out of the wall behind the TV where i made a hole with a holesaw. The cables are just loose inside the wall between the two studs.



*DISCLAIMER* I have no idea if my method is compliant with building codes in your area. I can only assume it is if you use in-wall rated cables.

Not necesarilly. The only difference between a 3D rated cable or adapter is that it's been tested and qualified to meet the specs so a non-3D rated cable might work as well as a rated cable. With adapters I wouldn't expect any problems since there's no cable length and thickness involved.

Running cables through a PVC pipe/tube is a great idea if one wants to try to future-proof the wiring. If, down the road, you need to add a different cable, you simply either run a snake through the tube and fish the new cable through, or you can use a vacuum to suck a string from one end, attach the cable/wire to the other and then simply pull it through.

Unfortunately in the OP's case, it sounds like the installer didn't use a large enough diameter pipe to accept an HDMI plug.
Genius has its limits, however there is no limit on stupidity.

Yeah it makes more sense now knowing it's over a fireplace and that he needs to run cables horizontally. I wish I was able to help him more. That tubing was probably put in place with the idea that any cable needed would either be small or that it could be terminated in the field, which is not the case with HDMI.
