One thing to consider is the viewing angle to the top of the screen. I have heard it should be less than 20 degrees, but people differ wildly on what is appropriate.

We are considering mounting a plasma television over the fireplace but I am concerned about getting neck strain watching something up that high. Has that been a problem for anyone?

"Except for those who absolutely have no where else to put their display, I think over-the-fireplace installations are pretentious and stupid. It's a TV, not a painting. But then maybe these people all have some kind of elevator loungers?"
I guess I'm pretentious and stupid as well. I placed mine above the fireplace because it put it at eye level due to the configuration of the fireplace and my normal viewing position and centered it in the room in the best acoustic position between the L/R speakers.
