Question about Flat Panel Televisions
Would it be a bad idea to mount my LCD tv above my fireplace? There is a recess in the wall above it and it seems like a natural fit. Will i pay for it in the long run?
You should try giving Embers Sleaford a call or have a look on their website for their contact info. I'm sure they'd be able to point you in the right direction... http://www.embersuk.com

Not knowing the architecture of your house and what type of fireplace you have it is hard for me to answer this effectively. You say you have a recess, was this recess designed for televisions as is commonplace in recently built homes? And what type of fireplace do you have, is it wood burning or gas? By any rate I would not mount a TV above a fireplace unless I was sure it would be safe there. Try putting a small thermometer where you'd like the mount the TV and check how hot it gets while you use the fireplace. Also, do a visual check for the amount of smoke that escapes the fireplace back into the room and not through the vent/chimney. If after doing this it seems reasonable to mount your TV there go for it.

Heat rises and smoke has particulate matter in it. And heat is the enemy of electronics. So personally, I would not mount any expensive TV over a fireplace. However, if you have nice glass doors covering your fireplace opening, good updraft in your fireplace, and a large mantel that projects out over the opening, you will probably get reasonable life out of your LCD TV.

I live in Iowa, where can I get my Olevia TV repaired? I have audio, but a black screen. I have had this set for only 2 1/2 years.
