Try a stud finder or tap along the wall with your hammer and listen for a change. When it sounds solid you have found the stud. If you want to be sure nail a small pilot nail and see if it hits the stud. Do this process again and measuring the distance between the two spots will tell you how far apart the studs are in the wall which will enable you to find the next one and so on.
Do you have an existing TV cabnet? If so what I did was put in a piece of 1x6 behind the cabnet and attached the mount through the cabnet side and into the 1x6. It's holding a 19" TV. In the front I took a cabnet door off and cut and stained a piece of nice board to match the cabnet and attached it using the hardware from the old cabnet door and then attached it with the wall mount. If you don't have that ability then try and find a stud. It shouldn't be hard because the walls aren't that thick.

Thanks to all. I will try a stud finder first, unfortunately there is no cabinet, just a wall at the foot of our bed above the window. There is a very small existing shelf in the corner that accomidated the old small TV which is where I will now have the DVD player.
