We used the Hardie Panel product with Fry Reglet reveal channels on our Zaguan House project. We were happy with the way it turned out. It was very easy to cut the channels and panels as needed to adjust the overall grid to align with the Architectural elements. We installed the system as a rain-screen, with a secondary drainage plane behind it, and I'm guessing you'd need to consider a similar method if you install it in your locale.

This doesn't exactly address your question, but have you considered moving the tv to the space left of the fireplace and aligning the top of it with the top of the fireplace mass? The tv might end up at a more pleasing viewing height from a seated position, and it'll give you a chance to create an interesting horizontal composition spanning across the entire wall. If you study it and like it, then the next consideration might be a unifying background material across the entire horizontal area (on both sides of the fireplace).

I just did a bathroom with a mix of thassos select A polished marble @ 24x12 (floor) and the shower and accent wall in honed thassos, cut 3/8" x 2-1/2" in a herringbone pattern. It's really cool, I think ... and if you did the wall in a polished, pure white marble and the fireplace in a complementary herringbone, I think you'd have something remarkable. This pic of the herringbone will give you the idea.
