Solved! Why It’s a Mistake to Mount a TV Above a Fireplace - BobVilla

Quote:
Only mount a TV above a fireplace if temperatures in that spot do not surpass 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
You may have luck with a fireplace that produces less heat, features a deep mantel, and strong blower.
  1. Tape a thermometer to the wall in the approximate center of where your flat-screen TV might hang.
  2. Then start the fireplace and let it run for several hours.
  3. Check the thermometer.
If the temperature reaches or exceeds 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the location is too hot for your TV. If the temp remains below 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the TV should be safe in that location—but you still might want to reconsider, for the reasons explained below.

Damage from a fireplace’s heat could void your TV’s warranty.

Today’s new big-screen TVs cost a pretty penny, and if yours goes on the fritz soon after you buy it, you’ll want to call a service technician to fix it. If the technician discovers signs of heat damage, the manufacturer will often refuse to pay for the repairs, even if the TV is still within the warranty period. Read the warranty’s fine print; it may specify that just the act of mounting the TV over a fireplace is enough to void its warranty.

For those of you contemplating mounting above your fireplace.. against the advice of (almost) everyone on this sub I did it. My neck hasn’t broken, my TV hasn’t lit on fire, and it looks great IMO
As you can see its too high as even the heat of the display has no where to go bumping the low ceiling, the fireplace even with a mantle has nothing to prevent heat radiating up.

I will ask my question here as it was ignored elsewhere:

I do have a question for those of you that stream far more often than I do. I have complained about the audio quality of streamed content, but I know some of that is due to how I stream in the first place. I use the built-in apps on my Sony X900F TV, mostly Vudu, Netflix, and Amazon Prime, but my TV only supports ARC, not eARC.

Now that I have an AVR that supports Atmos, I would like to take full advantage of it and that means either buying a new TV that supports eARC or buying a dedicated streaming device that supports more audio formats. Which dedicated streaming device would be the best one to buy to get the most out of the apps that I use? I prefer one that has an ethernet connection as I made the effort to run ethernet cable to my viewing room. Is doing this worth the modest expense? Would I hear a noticeable improvement by using a dedicated streaming device over using the ARC function of my TV?

From what I have read the Apple TV is probably the best streaming device available. I have found Netflix, Amazon and Plex all run much smoother on this than the built in apps on my Sony A1. I would however wait to see if Apple release a new version this year, as it is long overdue now.

Btw got one of those fake fireplace jobs installed in tv stand. It doesn't hurt electronics at all and I have fans anyway. The back is cool to touch. Hot air blows out. Works great for me. Perfect eye level.
