Default Another Help mounting my LCD W/ pics

I want to mount my 52" LCD above my fireplace. I don't use the fireplace (live in SoCal) so heat won't be an issue. My dilemma is that the area where I want to mount it is wood panel and I THINK there are only two horizontal (not vertical) studs behind the wood panel that are too far apart from each other for the mount I have (Simplicity SXDP3).

The only thing I can think of is to mount a piece of plywood to the exterior of the wood paneling, securing it to the horizontal studs. Then fasten the mount to that piece of plywood. If I do it this way what is the best way to secure the mount to the plywood and what thickness of plywood should I use?

Is this the best way to go about this or are there other ways?

Here is a picture of the area. The yellow lines are where the studs are, the solid vertical strips of masking tape are the outline of the chimney.

Well I cut a hole in the wall from the garage side that showed me that there are some vertical studs framing the fireplace that I can use. Th problem is that there is a space (about 1/4~3/8) between the stud and the wood paneling. I assume that somewhere else the paneling is up against a stud but not where I need to put my lag bolts. My question is what should I do about the gap. I was thinking of using some kind of spacer like a short yo fill the gap. If I use that method then I would have to dill a hole in the wood panel slightly larger than the pipe spacer.The load would be transfered to the stud through the pipe spacer and if i get the perfect size space then the mount wouldn't necessarily be touching the wood panel. Does that make sense?
