Semi on topic. As you can tell I'm into film as an art form. My viewing setup has never been sublimated to the furniture or surroundings. Can't tell you how many times I've gone to a house and the TV (I'm afraid often due to "the wife") is mounted up too high, often above a fireplace. Even worse is when the off-center seating forces you to not only turn you head upward, but also to one side. The TV needs to be viewed head on with the eye line hitting the TV about 1/3 from the bottom. Also much closer than most people think.
