    From what I've read (& I'm by no means an expert ;-), if the heat could 'melt' a candle where the screen is then this is ABadThing(tm).
    If not, should be okay.

    I would personally probably put a shelf & then ensure the radiator was only ever on low (I'm sure the heat from the plasma would make up for it ;-)
    cheers

    A typical heat output for a Plasma is 370 Watts and an operating temperature of up to 35 Deg C.
    Regards.

    Turn the radiator off. The plasma will generate enough heat to compensate :D

    A shelf is a good idea, as it deflects the direct heat away, and it provides a place for your centre speaker to sit!:laugh:
