This is perfect for the Netflix Yule Log channel. But you need at least 5.1 audio to get the real experience.

Always wondered what (if any) impact the heat above a fireplace has on your set.

As with most things, it depends on your specific situation. Vented gas logs with a large mantle protruding out from the wall really far and also a large fireplace hood would probably be almost no effect. Vent free gas logs with no mantle or fireplace hood (which is probably a really bad idea) would get really hot and probably destroy your TV.

So the impact would range from pretty much nothing to totally melted destroyed TV.

Just want to share my experience with this thing. This did not work for my 65 inch ks8500 even though it was within the weight limitations (although 65 inch size is larger than rec spec). The spring tension never was able to balance the weight of the TV; even at the extreme ends of the adjustments it was not able to pull the TV up against the wall. I would think one would face the same issue for 55 inch as well. May work as intended for TVs smaller than 55 or less weight. my 2c.

If you have an older home or older fireplace it's a legitimate hazard for your home or at the very least your TV.

Modern homes and firehouses are designed to dissipate almost no heat near the upper channel which means your TV will pretty much be at comfortable, room temperatures +/- a few degrees at the most.

That seems weird to assume that the range of fireplaces is basically encompassed by gas. I've never lived in a house that had a gas fireplace. We have 2 wood burning fireplaces.

I didn't assume or imply anything. I just gave 2 examples at opposite ends of the spectrum to show that that your results may vary anywhere between no effects at all to to very drastic effects depending on your specific situation.

That seems weird for you to assume that the range of fireplaces is basically encompassed by wood. I've never lived in a house that had a wood-burning fireplace. We have one coal fireplace and one that burns liquid oxygen.

It's even weirder for you to word your response in such a ridiculously wordy way instead of just saying "Not all fireplaces are gas."

I placed a Sceptre 55 over fireplace with insert I ended up with big patches of I guess burn spots just to much heat that TV runs hot on its own and still works just not very well HEAT KILLS

Reminds me of the time, I was using my laptop at my mothers house. Opened it up on coffee table and went about browsing or whatever and started to see this circle on the top left side of screen, started trying to rub it away as it just got brighter and brighter until I went to grab it and stuck my index finger into the melted plastic on the other side of the lid. Here there was a yankee candle lit that I didn't notice and while it didn't ruin my laptop, sure did give it some "character"

As an observer, your even wordier response was even weirder. Nice job.

I had a 70" and currently have a 65" above the fireplace with this mount. This is a great price (lowest ever with free shipping I think). I suspect they are clearing them out for a version 2 that can span wider stud spacing and hopefully also has beefier gas shocks.

Regarding fireplace mounting, I tested my 20 year old wood burning fireplace before installing the TV. The wall got 1 to 2 degrees hotter than room temp using all I ever use, a Duraflame log. YMMV.

The bolts on the adjustable arm will probably be too tight, impeding travel. Loosen, then re-tighten them all.

If you have a large TV to mount, I strongly recommend dialing in the tension before mounting it. I used a couple S hooks and cloth grocery bags full of soda to approximate the weight of the TV. This gave me a lot more room to work. I never could get it to hold across the full range of motion though. Also, you aren't gonna be pushing a 65 lb TV up with one finger either. It still takes a bit of muscle to push the TV all the way up.

I have 24" spacing of my steel studs with one perfectly centered above the fireplace, so I had to improvise. I spanned 2 studs with 3 ft. steel flat bar purchased at Lowe's and drilled extra holes centered into the mount. I also used snaptoggles. This has been very sturdy for me so far. YMMV.

Heavier TVs will tilt down. The tilt adjustment sucks. I grabbed a few free paint sticks from the Hardware store and made a wood shim roughly 1.5 inches thick to alleviate the tilt. Works great.

All that said, I'd buy it again for $99. I do wish there was a better alternative for less than $200.
