Question about Televison & Video
We want to install a flat screen tv above a gas fireplace. There is a mantel above the glass doors.
How high above the heat source or doors or mantel does the tv need to be mounted?
We are assuming a LCD would be better than a plasma in this situation, is that true?
Both LCD TVs and plasma TVs get hot, though plasma TVs tend to be a bit hotter in my experience. Also, plasma TVs are going out of fashion.
A lot will depend on the construction of your fireplace. If it's brick it should insulate fairly well.
Either way, I would recommend a mounting solution that does not put the back of the TV flush with the wall. Get one that tilts. I would avoid the "arm" style ones as that will put additional strain on the mounting.
Remember to think about how you want to run your power and video cabling as well!
