HELP! I was planning on ceiling mounting my TV3 but the ceiling (I just discovered) is sheet rock with a good bit of space above. My stud finder came up empty. Can the sheet rock hold it? What kind of screws should I use (I am an idiot and am very clueless).

Help me please I want to watch the Pats today at 3pm!!

FREAK!

I had the same problem in my old house... I used a bunch of toggle bolts and it works just fine. I would not use the plastic anchors (even the threaded screw type anchor) as they tend to fall out over time and you wouldn't want your projector crashing to the floor.

Direct-TVs and projectors mount best with the mounting cages that are designed for them. You would need to find the nearest studs in the ceiling and reinforce the area to hold the unit. If you have ceiling access you have it made. Use large washers and bolts.
