I'm planning to get one of those 58" panny plasma soon and I plan to mount it over the fireplace. I have seen the pictures of similar installations and they look gorgeous.
However, I have a question for the owners who have similar installations. Is there any discomfort while watching movies/TV shows for over an hour, if the height of the panel is above the eye level? Is it worth it or should I look for an alternate arrangement?(I don;t have many more options to place the TV, but if it's really discomforting, I might get a smaller panel and place it somewhere else.)
I'll be sitting at 10 feet from the panel and midpoint of the panel would be approx. 4 feet from the eye level.
