If it does not annoy you, it is a fine thing to do.

Actually, it would probably be even better to put a try of ice cubes behind the set, so as air is sucked into the bottom of the set it will cycle across the ice cubes, cool and help to better cool the tv.

But, seriously, the sets are designed to cool by convection currents through the back of the set from bottom to top. I guess what would be ill advised would be to place a set low and directly over a hydronic heating apparatus . . . . so just use common sense.

that might work ,however my tv is not on a tv stand its inside an entertainment center.its not real closed in but it seems that it traps alot of heat that rises to the top of the inside.i sat a small fan behind it and it is warm to the touch now.before it was hot.

Cut in 2 muffin fans at the rear on the top, maybe that will remove the heat. Can you take a temp. of the air temp.?

You must measure the air temp. in the cabinet above the tv. You could just remove the back panel on the enter. center behind the tv.
