If the fireplace doesn't vent into the room at all, there's no problem. You're very smart to pay attention to details like that. There are many fireplaces out there that should never have a TV over them!

COASTROAD Hearth & Patio
Agree with Anne, but I would also add that even vented (direct vent) fireplaces can produce large amounts of radiant heat, especially a good-sized one like in the photo above. If that really is a fireplace in the photo, I would say that the center channel speaker and TV are too close to the fireplace, closer than the installation manual for the fireplace probably allows.

The installation manual for the fireplace will give you very specific information about how close you can place combustible materials (wood, etc.) to the fireplace, but remember that the testing that fireplaces go through allows those materials to get to about 200 degrees F in those ALLOWED positions, which is too hot for a TV.

Fireplace manuals do not discuss how close you can put a TV, and TV warranties generally say that you should not install the TV near a source of heat, so you are in somewhat uncharted waters. Proceed at your own risk, with caution.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

For instance, a person walking along the second floor would experience the light in a totally different way than someone sitting in the living room.
