Default TV panel mount help

I mount my 50" plasma TV on an Ikea wall panel this weekend and I notice the wall panel is curved a bit. Should I be concern? my tv is 76lbs and the wall panel said it can support upto 110lbs. As you can see from the pictures, I tried to re-enforce the back by using a 2x1 wood. I will replace that with a steel bar instead later for better support.

It would probably be less hassle to just mount it on the wall.

In order to correct the bowing, you need to place your re-enforcement horizontally, not vertically.

Thanks I will see if I can mount a steel bar today. I first wanted to do that but then I wanted the flexibility of moving the tv later.

the board has a monoprice wall mount on it. It is way more stable than the hanging mount Ikea sells.

I re-enforce the back with a L steel bar.



the top still show a curve but I feel much better about it holding up now.
