I'm having some trouble finding a decent wall mount for my TV. I have this TV: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=8378668 which is 58" and weighs 67 pounds. I'd like to find a good fully articulated wall mount for it. My main issue is that my studs are 24" apart.

The few I've found tend to have bad reviews for that size TV (saying they are too heavy and parts tend to bend).

Any suggestions or ideas?

My parents have two huge TVs and they just got the wall mounts they found in best buy... Our old town house had two studs that were too far apart, so my dad cut a piece of wood and screwed it on top of the two studs and then placed the wall mount over it so it'd be secured.

This is actually a pretty great solution. 

Otherwise there are some beefy options like this: http://www.amazon.com/MI-310B24-Articulating-32-60-inch-extended-suitable/dp/B002CTP6JM.  Seems pretty legit and is way on sale, with articulation in horizontal and vertical direction, too. 
Clearly it's not arrogance, for arrogance would be a flaw.

I agree with CJ, I didn't even think about that. And it isn't like anyone is going to notice either.

It is on a wall that you walk past to get to the bedrooms so it would be visible from the side. That is not to rule it out, it just means I would need it to be a nice piece of wood that is finished on the end and would probably need to be stained.

CJ, I did look at that one, it is only 19.5" wide: http://www.amazon.com/MI-310B24-Articulating-32-60-inch-extended-suitable/product-reviews/B002CTP6JM/ref=cm_cr_dp_qt_hist_one?ie=UTF8&filterBy=addOneStar&showViewpoints=0.

Looks like it might actually be 25" and the bad reviews came from people who received the wrong one.

Wow, that's pretty damn annoying considering the title is all caps 24" studs.  Good on you for catching it in the reviews.

There is a metal stud pretty much right in the middle of where I would like to mount the TV. I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. It means that I can't drill in to 2 different studs unless I get a large (4 foot wide) back plate like Agent suggested. But if it can hold the weight, then it might be just fine. Time to go to Home Depot and ask some questions.

Highly unlikely that the metal stud is load bearing (structural vs. used to hang drywall), so it probably won't help you here. 

I wonder if you could offset the mount (black) to use the stud (brown) on the visible side of the TV, then use lumber (brown) to reach the other stud.  Basically extending the wall mount.  If you have a nice piece of aluminum or something you could make it pretty, but that part wouldn't necessarily be visible anyway. 

Clearly it's not arrogance, for arrogance would be a flaw.

Well, if I'm going to use some visible lumber/metal, then I'd be better off doing it like Agent suggested and just getting a piece that extends across all 3 studs and then screwing the mount in to that.

But yeah, I called up one mount manufacturer and he referred me to another company because they didn't have anything which would work if I wanted a full-motion mount. I never realized metal studs were so useless until now. :( They totally sound stronger.
