Many a mistake has been made in putting a flat screen TV over a fireplace, some of the commentators have already mentioned the height issue, where you would nearly have to be lying down to avoid neck strain.More often people are frying the TV with too much heat, heat rises and if it is too strong or too close to the TV it will cause damage. As a rule of thumb, do not use a h/e or glass fronted gas fire; use an open multi fuel or an open gas fire. Better again and the safest option is to use one of the new flat screen electric fires; the gap between the two can be reduced and you have the option of having the flame effect with no heat ( and therefore at a much reduced cost).
