Default What size is your tv, how far back do you sit?

going through many possible setups right now in my living room, and I'm realizing that the optimal viewing distance for my 50" plasma will not be possible, and will probably be about 11 feet back.

Curious on how far everyone else is from the tv, and what size tv you have.

Oh, and my plasma is 1080p.

Ice, I sit 10 feet away from 46" LCD. I know it is a bit too far, but the rooms limitations just would not allow it to be closer without conjesting the entire room. I still think it looks good and have had no problems with the PQ that I see from that distance.

Of course, this could be part of the motivation as to why I'm currently looking into projectors. I just need the WAF, and by X-mas its mine.

My main HT set is a 58" 768p plasma and I sit ~11' from it. Perfect for what I want/need right now.
