At the risk of being pedantic, it's not technically an insert (which is something that goes into an existing fireplace), it's a gas fireplace. I'm pretty certain it is a 36" Town & Country with the Country Home burner. Check it out here: http://www.townandcountryfireplaces.net/products/tc36.php

Here it is with a different burner, in the arched version:

I find it interesting how many time we see the TV over the fireplace when what is mentioned above is absolutely right. The heat from the flu it not so much a problem as is soot from a real wood burning fire place. And yes, looking up requires a consistent use of eye muscles making it less relaxing to watch TV.

I am doing my basement over and Vapor Trails was my first sample color. I have cherry floors and a very white (grey undertone) new drop ceiling. My staircase is carpeted in the same color as the owner's chair in your living room. I have about 10 sample paints, but I'm being haunted by Vapor Trails. I love blue/greens and I think of this color as a neutral, looking great with dark brown, any blue green and even a yellow green. Help.....do you agree, or am I hallucinating, which wouldn't surprise me, given all the paint colors I've looked at!!

They're more commonly called an IR Repeater. You can search for them on Amazon or Monoprice.com. Basically there's a little receiver (eye) you mount somewhere in the open, and then a wire goes to a little box. That little box then repeats all of the signals from any remote and sends them back out via wires to IR 'blasters'. These are little pieces that you'll stick on the front of your DVR, stereo, DVD player, etc. Be aware that some models don't work very well with certain cable boxes/DVRs, so just be sure you get one that's compatible with what you have.

The huge t.v. over the beautiful large fireplace (first picture on top) completely ruins the look! I would hide the t.v. behind something when not in use - like a custom built cabinet. Maybe some type of narrow (from front to back) wood cabinet with a sliding door so when you want to watch t.v. you just slide the door back. I would paint this cabinet the same color as the fire place and have it made to look like it a natural part of the structure. The idea would be so that when not in use, you can't see that monstrosity!!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Mel Sierra added this to Reshape Your Room With Color
Enhance features. If there's something you love in your home and want to show it even more, try enhancing it with color. By painting it a different shade, the feature — in this case a fireplace — will become the focal point.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Painted Fireplace Mantels Add Pizzazz
Create a relaxing and serene contrast with a deep blue-gray fireplace mantel that has a touch of green. Try Benjamin Moore's Templeton Gray for a coastal, transitional or traditional look.
Heather Freeman Design Co. added this to 10 New Looks for Fireplaces in Older Homes
Sometimes it seems there isn't anywhere else for the TV to go except above the mantel. I'm sure the original owners of our old homes could never imagine such a thing, but today it's common and can be done in a way that doesn't detract from the room's decor. The dark paint on the woodwork helps to disguise the TV better than if it were painted white like the shelves.See more on where to put the TV
Shane D. Inman added this to 7 Ways to Rock a TV and Fireplace Combo
1. Complete cohesion. Place the television directly on top of the fireplace and bring both of these focal draws together by surrounding them with wood and molding details in the same style.Design tip: Consider painting the backs of flanking bookcases the same color as the fireplace for further design cohesion.
A mantel painted in Benjamin Moore's Quarry Rock, a labradorite stone surround and buff firebrick in a herringbone pattern beautifully combine to create a custom gas fireplace.
Christina Katos added this to How to Fix a Mirror-Above-the-Mantel Dilemma
Most fireplace mantel and mirror combinations are painted white or stained. Add another dimension to your design by painting it an accent color.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Accent a Room With Colorful Trim
Painting your surround, mantel and chimney breast a color that contrasts with the rest of the woodwork — particularly if the rest of the millwork is white — is a stellar way to bring interest and depth to your room.
Mary Jo Bowling added this to TGIR: The Case of the Disappearing TV
If the all-over-noir look is not your thing, you can also go with a touch of gray. The pros at Julie Williams Design accented the fireplace only in this wall of built-ins.

UPSTAIRS- LOFT: 3' book shelving/base cabinets on each side. This picture illustrates the idea and layout NOT the color of cabinetry, granite, mantle etc. this is it for the entertainment center in the loft area. the design of the cabinet faces are fine. don't go to the ceiling vertical as the ceiling is 22'+ high. design the opening for the TV for 80" LCD.
