Well, here you go guys
Wall mounted, speaker-free! These pictures really don't do it justice, we were recording two shows at once so I just paused some recorded SD content so there was something on the screen and shot some quick, poorly planned pictures. How do you like all the wiring? Have 2 outlets to get installed and 200ft of speaker wire to run...
The mount is a Peerless ONE-TP modular mount. I specifically needed it because I wanted to span 3 16" spaced studs. Originally I had just wanted to catch 3 studs, but upon further investigation I couldn't *find* a stud in the middle.. and the spacing turned out to be something like 34" between the outside 2 studs I had to work with. I believe there is a header higher up and then no stud in the middle to make room for the fireplace parts. Either way, I was extremely glad I got such a versatile mount or I would've been doing this job another day. Did a few pull-ups on the mount before the TV touched it

You know, the previous owners of this home had a cross up where this TV used to be... It's kinda funny that this is the replacement for it :P
