Looking at mounting a HD LCD outside above my outdoor fireplace. It is not directly open to the elements, there is a roof that attaches my house to the outdoor fireplace next to the pool. What type of enclosure should I be looking for to protect my TV? I do not want to buy a new TV every summer when it is hot and humid, and again in the winter when it is cold and snowy.
In my experience wooden boxes even under cover begin to absorb moisture and in time (4 months in my case ) the TV failed as the internal circuits had corroded. There are many different solutions out there at the moment that will not absorb moisture and this is the best in our experience.
