I will definitely be mounting the TV on the wall above the fireplace. I am trying to find the best way to some how get all the media boxes close by without looking ugly; I have XBOX, Bose Control Centre, Apple TV... not that many. Bose box does the HDMI switching. Any great ideas to make them hidden, or mounted? Wall mounted cabinets are most commonly seen if there is no fireplace below. Been hunting online, Pinterest - my architect suggested between the wall space but I think it will get too hot (even with thermal insulation) and lack of airflow means some of the gears will be fried. Bose control centre does need IR reception so may need a IR relocator.
If you have any awesome ideas, please share?!
