I have my 46" TV in the living room and it is currently in front of the fireplace. I am considering mounting the TV to the wall above the fireplace. Has anyone done this? Will it take away from the viewing experience if I mount my TV above the fireplace so I'll be looking up at the screen?

Any suggestions/comments? I'd like to know if this is a terrible idea as it would look best in our living room and then my wife would be happy that the TV isn't blocking the fireplace...

Thanks so much! Seems like a good idea. Now I just have to figure out where to put the receiver.

You can read that other thread, but I've personally done the TV over fireplace thing for 6 or 7 years (two different TV's, two different fireplaces) with ZERO complaints.

And how do you hook up the center channel speaker?

I just set it on the mantel in the new place. I didn't have a center channel in my apartment.

But I have giant built in cabinets on either side of the fireplace, and I put the Monoprice powerbridge in the wall to hide cables.
