14 ft? That's quite far, even for a 65" TV. Any chance that you could sit closer? At 14 ft you'd be hard pressed to appreciate the detail of 1080p. I have a 55ST50 and I sit ~7 ft away.
If you want your line of sight to be in the bottom 1/3-1/2 of the screen then measure the height of your line of sight in your seated position and then visibly (or with tape) mark that on the wall. Mount the TV so that the bottom 1/3-1/2 falls somewhere within that mark.
If your so inclined, make a mock up of the TV with cardboard or poster board and place it on the wall to get a visual idea of where exactly you want that mark to be within the bottom 1/3-1/2 of the TV.
I've read this quite a few times: a common mistake people make is mounting their TV too high.Edited by p3Orion - 1/10/13 at 11:30am
