    Winter draws on.....

    Wifey sometimes wants the 42PD5200 to display a fireplace scene, obviously needs to move around a bit to be plasma friendly and a contemporary type fireplace - not one of these that look like it's from a castle.
    I guess the two options are a playable DVD or connect a PC and run a screensaver - I think DVD is probably prefered option.
    Any recomendations - a quick google shows there are quite a few !

    Apparently they are crap... I've got a feeling there are some other threads on here with mention of the poor effect of these.

    Buy a 'real' electric fire - I've just bought one and it looks great!

    But you can't get Sky News on a real fire !

    Sadly no space for both. A lot of them seem to be designed for the American market so the design of the fireplace is a bit OTT - Scottish castle theme etc - there must be one out there that is a bit more Euro / Ikea in style ?!
