I’ve got a 52" LCD TV that I’ve considered mounting above my fireplace, but I’m hesatent to do so because I think it would be too high and create an uncomfortable viewing angle. Now, the fireplace is rarely (actually never) used, and just placing the TV in front of it has also crossed my mind, but I’d still like to retain the functionality of the fireplace, even though actually using it remains unlikely.
One idea I had would be some kind of telescoping/adjustable mount above the fireplace that would allow me to pull the TV down and out in front of the fireplace for watching TV, but would also allow me to return the TV to a position above the fireplace when not in use (or when the fireplace is in use). Has anyone ever heard of a setup like this, or know if such a mount exists? If so, any ballpark guesses as to what it might cost?
