If I run a power cable alongside a video cable (RCA - Video, Audio), would I expect to receive much interference to the signal? It is only for about 3m or so, and is to connect a VCR to a wall-mounted TV.

You will probably not see any problem, as the amount of induction will be minimal.

The 230 v mains cable gives off electromagnetic induction based on the current flowing in the wire. As the TV uses very little power the current is quite low, so the induced magnetic field is unlikely to be a huge problem at 3 meters length.

Thanks godfather.
