    "You should use special plugs for plasterboard which can be spring toggle and screw or something like that."

    "Hi
    if you do not have to reinforce the wall behind the stand, then metal or wooden posts are best."

    "Yes the tv bracket can be mounted directly to the studs. If you find one in the centre of the wall you are looking to fix it to alternatively you can use various plasterboard fixing for mounting the bracket there are many to choose from you would need to look around and find suitable for the weight of the tv"

    "It can be fixed on the wall if you get a fixing on the studs,they are normally at 400mm centres. I would use 5 x 70mm screws"

    "Yes as everyone else has said. If stud spacing does not match and the fixings are not suitable for the plasterboard (fixing might be strong enough but plasters not! The board will give way long before the fixing!) as with kitchen cupboards a horizontal brace should be fitted between studs and fixed to adjacent studs at the required spacing. The plasterwork will need to be cut out to facilitate this. The fix the bracket to the wall with suitable fixings for a solid fix."

    "In short, yes. I would be looking to get the bracket fixed to a stud beam and given the size of the bracket you'll be using to hang such a big TV. I'm sure you'll find timber at least twice across the length of the bracket. Where this isn't possible, use anchor bolts to fix to the wall. I would bear in mind these anchor bolts, though strong, have been known to give under weight, at points of the plasterboard wall that is weak."
