There is a nice sitting room in our new home which we'd like to make the "place to watch movies". There is not quite enough room for a projection TV and really the room is screaming for a flat-screen plasma right above the wood-burning fireplace. Turning that cool vision into a reality is my new challenge. I am learning about plasma TVs and the Panasonic TH42-PWD4 seems to be getting alot of press. At $4599 it sounds like a good price from DTVCity. Anybody have hands-on experience with that model or vendor? My price range is low. I gotta keep it under 6K. Any other thoughts in that range? As for logistics, I think I can set-up all other components in the room behind the plasma room and run all cable through a hole the wall next to the TV. The cable TV is already run in that fashion. Having all of the cords uniformly run from the hole to the back of the plasma is more likely than running the cable between the small space between the brick and the drywall so that it is unseen. I am open for ideas here. Also my cable box is going to have to sit somewhere the remote control can hit it. Finally I am considering the straight wall mount vs the tilt wall mount since the plasma will sit at about standing eye level. Any thoughts here? I am totally new at this plasma stuff and am uncertain about installation complexity. I have read that I'm not the first guy to hang a plasma over a fireplace but am cautious about risk and precautions to be aware of. Perhaps a professional installer is appropriate ... if I can find one in Rochester NY. Either way I am excited to dive into this and I'm glad I found this forum. You people seem to know what you're talking about.
