Need to install one that will span 3 studs as the central one is in the middle of where the TV goes.

 

Anyone seen any 900mm long ones around?

 

Ive found 700mm long ones on surplustronics, but the outer 2 studs are about 800 apart.

Can you screw into the middle stud and use Gib grommet things for the outside? TVs aren't heavy, and screwing the centre into the stud will hold it fine, the outer ones help to keep it straight.

That will be the last resort option. Its just I recalled heaps of long brackets in the past, Couple of hopeful looking ones on PB that are for giant screens, so I may end up having to chop the vertical parts shorter so that they dont hang out the bottom/top depending on where the screen ends up on them.

Something like this from Trade Tested?  It says the maximum hole width for the back of the TV is 830mm, so the wall mounted panel must be at least that, and probably a bit more. If the studs you want to use are about 800mm apart, 830mm+ should be fine.

 

I bought a bracket from TT a few years ago (not that model though). It came with all mounting hardware and instructions, it's solid and works well, and was much cheaper than comparable ones I found in local stores - Noel Leeming wanted more for a bracket than I paid for the TV (admittedly the TV was on sale, but still...)

Ill have to see how a 2 rail one will work around the boxes in the wall before putting it in, but that sure is cheap enough that it can be deployed elsewhere if its not long enough so will order it anyway.

I've mounted a bracket on a wall bolting 1 end and middle (approx) leaving other end unfixed. The bracket was slightly offset behind the screen. It took my weight anywhere along the bracket. The screen size recommendations on many brackets seem to refer to older screens that were much heavier.

How heavy/big is the TV?

 

I had my 42" VT30 plasma (~24kg) on a heavy duty single stud cantilever arm mount. Was my only option when mounting between windows in the bedroom of our old villa. It worked fine! It used three 65mm x 10mm screw bolts from memory.

 

 

 

Was similar to this (mine was older model I think!):

As long as you have two screws in the studs and the four in jib grabbers you will be fine ( in fact the jib grabbers are fine as they are rated to about 20kg ea depending on which ones you get.

 

I did have to wallmount a 85" Sony 4K TV that weighed about 80kg out of the box, that needed to go into studs and there was a special bracket from Sony. What we did was get a piece of 5 or 7 ply about 15mm thick and put that in the wall with log & strong screws, then on with the bracket and you could not see a thing.

Have you thought of purchasing timber to span the x3 studs and bolt your bracket to that using 'Tee Nuts'?  I've done it plenty of times and works a treat with a bit of paint, you wouldn't even know.
