    Yeah we had it that way once, you can't see it, but there's a green leather chair down under the John Wayne picture. Yeah it is a nightmare. Haha!!! Another thing you can't see is behind the sectional is that the living room is recessed about 6-8 inches below the dining room so the sectional cannot move backward at all, as it's against the step.

    It is plasma. Also a little worried about putting too many concrete anchors in the brick.

    There are many ways to mount a TV to a brick wall. You could even get high tension wire(like used for really heavy mirrors and paintings)...

    1. Put two screws in the top of the VESA and twist the tension wire around it...
    2. Rubber stop the bottom two VESA.

    Essentially do the same you've already done with the mirror. High tension wire is available at any fabric/framing store.

    But....how much heavier is the TV than that mirror? I almost bet they weigh about the same.

    Sounds like my best option. I could use the existing anchors to do that too.

    Gotta look that up in the tv's specs.

    OK, maybe that mirror isn't hanging like I thought it was...

    By the way, I've hung TVs from rafters before using wire. Did a visual presentation setup in an art gallery. The TVs floated 9' up at roughly 30 degree angles(16' ceilings...with beams at 12')

    The mirror was mounted using lead concrete anchors and a wire I think. It's been there for quite awhile.

    The surrounds are fine it the left front that's the offending speaker.

    You could buy some front ceiling speakers too with tweeters you can point, some white speaker cable, it would make everything look better, it's a compromise but no more so than it is already.

    The only issue here is the plugs on this AVR are proprietary.

    Not really a huge deal(get some banana plug male/females)...but it isn't simply swapping speakers.
