    Oh, I see what you did. Gonna be tricky finding the right stand to fit on that "hearth".

    Agreed. What is funny is the poster above lives in AZ. I'm in Pa, and mine is "fake" [ was gas originally, capped it off. Should have just canned the FP, then there would be no issues.] Apparently FP's are not the big deal they used to be according to real estate agents. They are a lot of work. [ and a liability according to insurance co.'s]
    Shame R Mexico never posted back about his tv.

    Huh. I thought they were an advantage when selling. Makes me want to get rid of mine even more.

    Don't you just hate it when somebody posts or starts a thread with a problem and then never tells us the outcome?

    Well, double check your area about the FP issue, but I know insurance companies always ask if you have a fireplace, they don't like them in my experience. What's a selling point now is a walk-in shower [ got one] separate from the tub [ don't have one] I had to chose between a large walk in shower, or replacing the tub [ this was a remodel in a very small bathroom] I chose a shower with seats and never regreted it. [ Just like my Panny Plasma, lol ] The tub is a "must" theory is going away. I only know one person who perfers a tub over a shower, and that's for the bubbles :grin: .

    I think I may have not posted back once or twice, but I always try, even if I'm late, because yes, it's aggrivating. Posters don't realize every little bit may help someone. I guess we can just assume R.Mexico's tv experience was perfect and the tv had no problems.

    I'm still thankfull for your post last year regarding the "buzz" issue. Saved me a large headache :righton:

    Sometimes I think I could live without a tub, but if you get hurt, like a broken ankle and are in a cast, they certainly are handy. I was in a house just like mine, but without the fireplaces (I'm blessed with 2), yesterday. Now I'm really considering walling over them. Such a waste of space. Kinda like the dining room we never use.

    OK, had a cast for awhile, I just bagged it, and used the handheld shower head [ have fixed and handheld] while sitting. Worked out O.K.
    Walling over, not a bad idea.
    That way if you ever sell, new owner can re-expose it.
    Mine is a 40's grey brick on a plaster wall. scary. Still, it is wasted space and makes furniture placement much more difficult. When I moved in here, all things dining room went, including chandelier. I now have three computers, 3 birds, storage for music and video and a Big ceiling fan in there.
    I have a nice kitchen table for eating [ I grew up in a house that spent most of the time in the kitchen, and maybe 2% in that unused dining room, except for thanksgiving] but, I will eat in front of tv, [ often] So much for tradition.

    We've always eaten in front of the TV. The more I think of walling up that fireplace, the more the idea appeals to me. In fact, walling up both of them really appeals to me. Haven't used them for years.

    A little rearrangement. (soon to be replaced by a "free" 60" courtesy of the Room Store)

    Post a pic. I'd like to see the fit and finish of the 60" on that hearth.

    When we do update, the TV may go on opposite wall so the theater seat is not in the middle of the walking area. It depends on how far back the seat needs to go.

    I got a Panasonic 60" ST60 in June, and I'm very happy with it. I did nothing at all about "break-in", since I think that is all just an urban myth (unless you're paying for a calibration and want to get the phosphers aged before the calibrator visits -- then it makes sense). I got the best deal from Best Buy.
