Resolved Question

Wireless Headphones

Hi Everyone

How do I connect my wireless headphones to my samsung tv when the tv has no audio out port.
It only has a digital audio out optical jack. This is the same with the surround sound,

Many Thanks

Mandy

Get an optical to analog convertor (plenty on Amazon) then the usual wireless headphones will connect to that.

There are a few models this won't work with. These are mostly the low cost leaders at the usual places so to get the best answers I hope CNET members will post the model numbers with those posts.
