For a while now I've been meaning to mount my 17" LCD TV onto the wall and today I've started the first steps. As the thread title suggests, it's a lathe and plaster wall. So, a few holes in it later and I'm 90% sure I've found a stud (I'll do some more drilling just to confirm). But now, I'm not entirely sure what the best route is from here, because different sites say different things. Do I go ahead and try to mount straight onto the stud, or am I better off making a mounting board and fixing that, then using strong wood screws to attach the bracket to this? Or, is there any other method? Cheers. PS - the TV is 7kg. Just in case that makes a difference.
