    Can anyone tell me what the safe operating temperature of most LCD's are?

    The reason I ask is that I wish to wall mount a Samsung 37" LE37M87BDX/XEU LCD in the best position for sound and vision, which is above a working open fire place burning logs. I have measured the temperature of this location when the fire is burning, and recorded a maximum temperature of 25°C. This to me seems to be okay, as some people have their central heating cranked up that high.The wall doesn't reach this temperature as the chimney is lined with a thermal insulator, so it is only the radiated heat from the fire in question.

    Well if the wall deffinatly doesn't reach high temperator I think 25°C is acceptable. You're best checking the manual, it lists what the temperature limits are.
