Alternatives to Placing TV Above the Fireplace?

Good Questions

Q: We plan to keep the television along with gaming systems, dvd player and two large speakers that we use daily. The problem is that the design of the room lends itself to putting the tv above the fireplace but we have always been very opposed to that. We're considering putting the tv in the opening with the columns and putting the couch in front of the windows, but we would want to come up with some way to block off the opening so you're not looking at the back of the tv from the other room…

We've discussed curtains, a screen, closing up the wall, etc. but we're not sure what the best option would be. Can anyone offer any suggestions?
