Mounting new LCD over fire place?
The above advice is all good. Last year, my dad had professionals put his 42" lcd on a stone fireplace about where a mantel would be and it works and looks fine. (Note: it may help that his burns gas instead of wood) The professionals did the same things the other replies mention, except that instead of using cable runs (tunnels) to hide the wiring, they just twisted them into a bundle and secured them with cable ties. Of course the appearance was improved tremendously by using cables approximately the same color (gray) as the mortar in the joint where the bundle runs. Don't even think about using white cable unless it's completely covered. This kind of installation is done all the time, however, it requires extra hands to handle and maneuver the weight and bulk of a large screen set while installing it. It helps if your audio & video equipment is close to the set like his is now, instead of on the other side of the room where it started out.
