Distance to screen, 16 ft. Too far??
I'm trying to get a floor plan together for a familly room and would like to mount a 37 or 40" (maximum) TV on the bookshelves existing on either side of the fireplace. the viewing distance form the furthest point (person sitting in a recliner) is 16 feet, even with the TV on a pull out shelf. We aren't planning to use an HD feed in this room because the quality of the non HDTV broadcasts are not good, and that is what we will be watching most of the time. We will also use it to watch DVDs. Is it just too far away to consider??
