    Wall mounted only look good if everythingís clean cable wise, if you see a cable it looks very DIY and shit imo.
    Depends how far up the wall imho ....mine sits just a couple of feet above a long decorative/practical unit that stores all the media boxes and I donít find the wires distasteful or shit.....but then maybe I have poorer taste than though

      At least no one else had to point it out.

      And on this subject.
      I'm looking to remodel my lounge and want one of those realistic oblong fires. But has anyone got one sited under their TV, and does it look good or does the fire distract the viewing?
      Get an old plasma TV from eBay, and leave it on. You won't need a fire, then...

      When placing a TV, wall mounted or not, for comfort always have the screen where you look across to it or down on it, never have it so you have to look up to it.
      Good advice. I once made the mistake of mounting a tv on the wall above the mantelpiece. After a week or so l ended up with a stiff neck.

      If you just want terrestrial tv and you have broadband, a good smart tv will give you all available Freeview HD channels and two hundred others. I watch most of the stuff I would have recorded in one of the catch-up services. I also record on to a 1gb hard-drive when the need arises.
      Don't make the mistake of buying a telly that's too big. Use this https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/by...e-relationship to get the right size.
      You can't go wrong with a Panasonic, although others may disagree.
      I currently have a panasonic with surround sound so know they are good. Do the smart tvís have apps for things like netflix?

      They certainly do. There's even a button on my Panasonic remote control with NETFLIX in big red letters!
      There's a little Freeview secret. On channel 100, there are loads of catch-up services. I find it really useful.

      We did similar but with an electric fire - it's off in the pic obviously but the 'flames' aren't distracting at all. Built a false chimney breast, added a marble hearth stone and mounted the telly above the fire - height is fine, particularly with reclining chairs. Good things was (ref other comments) we could put all the cables directly through the false chimney breast so none are visible.
