Another TV thread: putting a TV over a fireplace
I don't need a recommendation on a tv, just a recommendation on its placement. Will putting a flat panel LCD tv over a fireplace mantle do any harm to the tv? I've heard that it can cut its life-expectancy significantly, but I'm not sure if that's true. Something to do with the heat that emanates up from the fireplace as well as from behind the wall in the chimney. This is a wood-burning fireplace, not a gas fireplace, if that makes a difference.
Also, if anyone has that kind of set-up, what did you do with the boxes (DVR, DVD, etc)? Did you also run the wires behind the wall?
Sorry to distract from all the divorce talk, but this is serious business.
