The Right Height For Your Television

We've been house sitting for friends this week and while we're loving the beach breeze, we aren't so sure about the height of their television, mounted high above the fireplace mantle. We wanted to ask you your opinion on how high a tv should be placed and if there is a right height?We've heard that the basic rule of thumb is eye level but establishing a good height for your television can be tricky if you chose to mount it on your wall.

We ask you what's been your experience with the right height and how to handle this tv placement?
