I need to run a 10m coax cable to carry both AC-3 and PCM data. I'm having a tough time sourcing a dedicated digital audio cable in the UK for a reasonable price - would a 75ohm video coax cable cut it?

In my oppinion: No problem!

When you are at it, check out the Max Rochlin memorial cable:

I like it mostly because one can make it look really nice.
