I currently have a 51 inch plasma display and am sitting 6.3 feet away from it, I followed SMPTEs guideline there, but is one better than the other?

I am the only one that will really be using this HT room.

I was looking at that before, and I read that you should be 2.5 times the height of the tv from the tv itself.
