     We are building a vacation home in the Pocono Mountains. Standard in the construction is a very nice stone fireplace with stone hearth and mantle. There will be a gas insert. It is not woodburning. It is currently framed, but the stone has not yet been applied. I've attached a couple...

    I would like to mount my 60" TV over my brick fireplace since that is the center of the wall. But I would need to mount it above the mantle and that would place it too high for comfortable viewing. I saw a motorized swing "out and down" mount in (Sept2013) Home Theater magazine, that does...

    Hello forum. I have been lurking around for a few weeks reading a lot of helpful threads about home audio. After much research on here, I have decided on the HSU Hybrid 2 package in the 5.1 configuration for my family room which measures 16X18X9. Unfortunately, I have to put my TV over the...

     We're about to move into a new house and would like to mount our 46' LCD above the fireplace pictured above. Having never done this before I have a few questions: The house is in San Jose, CA. Does anyone have recommendations of someone who can do this? Also, an idea of typical cost...

    Hello everyone. I'm a newbie and need a little advice. I have the dreaded "TV over the fireplace" setup in my 16x20 living room which does open to my kitchen. Since the fireplace is involved (and I really had no choice) I have limited for space for my front LRC speakers. I would like to build...

    I'd like to get my plasma mounted over the fireplace in my family room. It's not my ideal place for it, but due to the size of the room and layout, it may end up being a better option from the current corner setup I'm using. The plan is, mount the tv, and install in wall surrounds. I'm just...

    We have a wood burning stove inside our fireplace and want to mount a flat screen above it, but I'm afraid the temps will be way too hot. I did some searching and found plenty of talk about the tv's above fireplaces and one post about the stove's, but more related to soot not heat. Thanks...

    Hi, I have a 42 inch Plasma TV that weighs about 70 pounds and the only place that I can mount it to that will look decent is above the fireplace. I have a Monoprice Ultra Slim wall bracket that is rated to hold 150 pounds. I live in an apartment so I can't do a whole lot of ripping out...

    we are remodeling and putting flat screen TV over the fireplace, running cables to the AV units on a shelf on the side. In planning what cables to run behind the wall, I was thinking of course about HDMI, but what else do I need to connect to the TV from my receiver? If I'm using legacy...

    After many days of arguing with my wife, I finally had to give up! She wants the TV mounted on top of the fireplace. We have a raised fireplace and the mantle is about 68 inches from the ground. We have a 50 inch Samsung LED TV. Both of us like watching TV and am really concerned about the...

    Greetings all. No big "theater" story here, just a long overdue elimination of my tv niche/nook above our gas log fireplace. We didn't use the fireplace much, so no loss there. During the last couple of years, I've seen some other tv niche installations where the entire flat panel display was...

    Hi: 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...
