I am in the proccess of purchasing a RPTV and have a question concerning raising the tv. The unit is a 57 inch Toshiba RPTV. It will be placed in the family room where there are two couches facing the TV diagonally (approx. 11 ft away from tv) and a pool table beyond the first couch. The dillemma is you wont be able to see the tv while playing pool because of the couch blocking the view. If I were to build a stand that were to raise the TV up six inches or so would that effect the viewing quality from 'couch view'? I am somewhat new to RPTV's and do not know a whole lot about them. I was told that the TVs are meant to be viewed from the height at which they stand from the floor. Will raising it 6 inches or so negatively effect my viewing? Any information regarding this will be much appreciated.
