I have just installed a linear fireplace and I'm about to start framing for the TV. I framed out the wall 10 inches so that I could recess the TV to protect it from heat from the fireplace. The opening of the fireplace "top of the glass" is 26 inches above the floor and the width of the fireplace is 62 inches.
My dilemma is... how many inches do I place the TV above the fireplace to provide a balance look? The opening for the TV will be approximately 48" x 32".
