Arrg Samsung! I cant use my universal mount because this TV has a darned protrusion on the bottom in the back! I need to find a mount with non equal rail lengths on either side of the mount screws (shorter on the protrusion side) to accommodate this peskyu protrusion, and one with thicker rails to allow it to reach and hang the plate. See pic below.

It's a Samsung UN43J5200 43" TV.

Additionally, the Samsung manual states I need M8 21.5-22.5 c (mm) length screws. But I can only find 20 and 30mm. What the heck? Thoughts?

time for a hack saw i think --shorten the rails at the protrusion end

get 30mm and hack saw those down

got a friend and had to put her samsung plasma on the wall for her

getting creative with a hack saw was what i had to resort to before i could get it up there

hers didnt even have standard vesa spacings for the screw holes was a right pain
