Picking the wrong size of TV

A majority of people think that having a big television screen will guarantee a good viewing experience. While it can be fun to watch movies and videos on a large screen, you need to consider the distance between your viewing position and the location of your television. The ideal viewing distance should be double the width of the television therefore if your space is not large enough to guarantee this distance then you should consider having a smaller television screen. Viewing from a close distance can also have negative effects on the health of your eyes.

Installation next to windows

The other mistake people make when they set up home theatre system is to locate the television set next to the windows. The ideal place to install the TV set should be away from windows where there is probably less lighting. This will give a better viewing experience as too much light can make the picture not to be clear when the TV is installed next to the windows. You should avoid setting up your entertainment area next to the doors as there can be lots of movement which can result in of distractions when enjoying the entertainment.
