Yeah, mine's above a fireplace. I use the Sanus xf228 and the companion vma202 for my center channel. I definitely have the set tilted down. I tried to eyeball it so that when I "lean back" into my couch the screen is perpendicular to my line of sight. Not sure if I've really paid attention to visible differences. This sanus can be pushed back quite a bit but it's certainly not "flush against the wall".Anyone have this tv mounted above a fireplace? If so, did you use the sony flat mount or a tilting mount? Curious to know what the viewing angle is like when looking up at the tv if mounted flat to the wall rather than tilted. Just bought my 940D and trying to figure out if I'll use my existing tilt mount or try to get that clean "flat against the wall" look.
