I was very surprised how well the fireplace tv install went. They had to drill out a channel and do finish patch and painting. It looked beautiful when it was done. I was also having a problem with getting my smart tv to work because of a router problem. Sean direct connected the box to the tv and it worked perfectly. Only problem was that I bought the wrong paint type. I bought a gloss paint and it didnt match perfectly. My fault. I bought the paint.
