TV Wall Mount Bracket Selection Advice

I have a 47' television that I am attempting to put on the wall. I purchased a Sanus wall mount. The problem that I am having is that the wall that I am trying to put the TV on only has one stud and the stud is not centered in the area. The bracket does not allow adjustment for stud location. Does anyone have an idea on how to work this installation or a different type of bracket that I could purchase to help me?

Don't know which mount you have sanus flat panel mount: Electronics
Most mounts have multiple mount holes. What kind of wall are you mounting to Drywall, Plaster ?

I don't have a particular model number for you, but you may want to get a full motion mount.
They're more expensive but articulate left, right, forward, tilt, any direction. I have one that mounts to one stud, but the TV can be moved quite a bit in any direction. If you go this route, check edges of stud with small nail. This is just to ensure you're hitting the middle of stud.

A piece of plywood large enough to span two studs. There are always studs at the end of the walls. Mount the TV to the plywood.
