Boys and Girls - I'm stuck. I'll be moving home in a few months and planning for the AV set up in my main lounge. This lounge is part of an extended part of the house which does not have any chimney. I was hoping to mount a fireplace on the wall to bring the room together and fulfil those glossy brochure dreams of a plasma TV mounted above a slick looking fireplace. My choice of fire was originally flueless, where the fireplace is fitted with a catalytic convertor to so that no chimney is required. However, having discussed in detail in http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=201859 it doesn't look like the way to go. The heat projected from a wall mounted (non inset fireplace) could cause any future Plasma or LCD TV I buy to melt down! I'm adamant that I want a wall mounted TV, so could anyone advise on their choice of fireplace ? My preference is to have a Gas fire and given the wall I will be mounting on is an external wall, I could go for a balanced or a power flue. I guess what I'm asking is would these Fireplace types be suitable ? Thanks Why is it that chimney based or electric fireplaces seem to be more Plasma friendly ?
