The photo is the wall above my fireplace,
my concern is the studs the wall mount would attach to.
Am I ok?
Would it be safe to attach my 50" to these two studs as shown in the pic?

PLMK, Thanks.

you should be good to go. When mounting a tv of that size my primary concern is wether or not the mount will hold it. Assuming you got the appropriate mount you're good. Just make sure you hit your studs so that you don't miss to the side and then you may be in for some unpleasantness. Bottom line is if you're hitting straight into the studs you should be fine. People hang big kitchen cabinets and even floating vanities from the studs.

use your stud finder to mark out both sides of each stud and then you can be sure to drill straight into the middle of the stud.

Yeah you shouldn't have any problems at all. I am assuming your studs are 16" apart. If not, make sure you buy a mount that will be able to reach both studs. Some mounts are specific to 16" stud spacing, but others have a wider template. I have the FMC3 from Kanto Mounting Solutions, and it only allows the 16 inch spacing. They have wider ones, but it worked for me.

The most important thing i was told was to make sure you attach the lag bolts to the center of the studs. This is what will allow the mount to spread the weight ratio.
