Yeah, rearrange the furniture. It breathes new life into stale spaces. Don't forget to sage as you go. I just did this yesterday to get my big old comfy chair a wee bit closer for the same reason. Pretty soon, as I age, I'll be sitting atop of the damn thing.

lots of reasons to get closer to the action, expressions on politician's faces, gestures in romantic films, spotting those out takes etc...

Maybe enter a remote mode where the keypad is a grid reference of the screen, each push zooms in for that area , shift push moves out ,mode key exits. All software viable by the TV's OS update. Picture would have to be channeled and processed accordingly, possibly needing extra hardware but that would depend on existing design and capability or simply, how flash is your existing TV?
