I wanted to put our TV over the fireplace, however the handyman said it would be a really bad idea because I would regret it once the neck pain set in. I did a ton of research, and found a tv mounting system that actually allows the tv to come out from the wall and travel down in front of the mantel so it is ultimately at eye level. We just had it installed and it seems to have taken care of the problem perfectly. I still have to figure out what to do with all the cords (I may have to drill a hole in the wall, or maybe I'll just get a cord wrapper and put a big plant to hide the passage of the bundle along the wall). The company that makes the tv mount is really small and doesn't distribute (yet, at least) through any big box stores. Their site is http://www.DynamicMounting.com . Only have had it for a couple of weeks, but it works smoothly. The handyman said it was incredibly sturdy and was capable of holding a huge tv (ours is average - 47").
