Hanging things on walls with metal studs

How do you hang a 42 inch LCD televison on a wall with metal studs?

If this was new construction you would install a backer board attached to the studding behing the drywall.
In your case you would need to mount a piece of at least 3/4" plywood with multiple fasters to at least two studs.

If the board was 6" overall smaller than the set and painted the same color as the wall it wouldn't be noticeable.
