Directly above radiator

Hi,

I'm in the process of preparing a new setup purchase (screen, amp, speakers etc). Was measuring everything up the other night and the missus said something quite important (which I would have only thought about once the screen was on the wall!!)...

"How bad is it to hang the screen a foot or two directly above a radiator?"

One of my best mates is a plumber so can get the rad moved for nothing, but just curious...

Any suggestions?

If you are running the radiator at high levels it is advisable to add a shelf above the radiator to divert the heat into the room if its a hassle to move it. Its the same principal of mounting a screen over a fireplace where the mantlepiece (if there is one) will again divert the heat away from the rear of the unit.

Not all bad news then as I planned on adding a shelf for the Wii's remote sensor bar to sit on as I ain't sticking anything on a £1500 display! :thumbsup:

Thanks/...

The other question about mounting it above a radiator is how high will it go and how far are you going to be sitting from it?
