At least there are no other lines from signal source to signal sink that I know of that cross the region of the board where the high-frequency HDMI signals are routed.  Also, to my knowledge we don't have segmented or restricted ground planes that would isolate regions with a higher-impedance reference.

 CEC etc. all follow roughly the same path, on layer 3 (separated by GND).

 i just noticed that SD0 runs round the back of the HDMI 1st set of
VIAS (with no GND separation) on layer 3 - i've removed the SATA power
(not being used) so i can shift them up a bit

 some GPIOs cross on layer 3 as well, just near the GND shielding near
those first vias...

 not much.
