I ran into this problem over a decade ago at a previous home. I wanted to mount the TV over the fireplace but found that the studs were a few inches beyound the width of the mounting bracket. I bought a really nice piece of oak (3/4 x 6 x 30 I think), sanded it, put a nice stain on it, mounted it to the studs, then centered the TV bracket on that with lag bolts.

The difference is that my bracket didtn't extend or swivel, so the mounting board was pretty much hidden by the TV itself. Also, this was around 2009 and the original 42 inch flat screen I was hanging weighed 3x what they are today. (probably 35-40 lbs)

The really fun part was adding a receptacle and hdmi plug behind the TV and running those wires behind the wall/fireplace. D'Oh! | :doh:
