Proper TV Size

What is the biggest 16x9 that should be viewed from about 10 feet? I was considering the 56" DLP, but I think it will be too big. 43 or 46 should be about right. Any suggestions?

Thanks for the link, very interesting results. Using the THX #s
"-Maximum and Recommended THX viewing distances: THX also publishes standards for movie theaters to adhere to for THX certification. THX requires that the back row of seats in a theater have at least a 26 degree viewing angle and recommends a 36 degree viewing angle."
56" screen size, max viewing distance is 8.8 ft, 61" max is 9.6', and 43" 6.8'.
If I just enter 8' for viewing distance, I get a range of 59 to 71" diagonal screen size. SO maybe I can go 61", bigger is better.
