Set up Question

So I just moved and the people that were here before us had their tv setup hung above the fireplace.  

The hitch is, they had all their devices behind the wall including the DirecTV Box and BluRay Player. 

So I was wondering if I Could setup the xBox One the same way if I leave the kInnect on top of the fireplace below the TV?  Would the controller still work through the wall?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hi there that wouldnt be a great idea the console needs to be in a well ventilated area to avoid overheating. As well as it needs to remain horizontal.

I was about to say something similar, Seider - having the Xbox near the fireplace, AND having the TV hanging on the chimney above the fireplace is definitely not recommended. There have been issues in the past with TV's mounted on chimneys where the TV experiences much faster wear-and-tear and ultimately wears out much sooner than it should, and it is traced back to the amount of heat put out by the fireplace, and specifically through the chimney. As much of a hassle as it might be, I might suggest locating your TV and devices somewhere else... far away from open flames.... :-)

If it has that kind of effect on the TV, I can't imagine it would be good for any other peripheral devices hooked to the TV. Hope this helps!
