Default OT(ish) VESA mounts

We fairly recently replace a 32" HD Ready flat screen TV with a 42" Full HD
flat screen TV.

The 32" TV is pretty heavy - grunt when you pick it up to move it.

The 42" TV feels ridiculously light - it feels light as a feather.

On the back, the 32" TV has a VESAO 100 mounting.
On the back, the 42" TV has a VESA 200 mounting.

So the old wall bracket, built (understandably) like a brick walled
outhouse cannot fit the new feather light TV.

This seems illogical - I would have thought that the mounting would have
been governed by maximum weight not screen size.

Ah, well.
