(either the 3.5mm standard on smaller electronics or the larger home audio size) you should be able to get a simple RCA to phono adapter for a few bucks. Most modern TV's have at least one set of stereo RCA output.
Ugh.. I am convinced that some idiot at the tv place gets in contact with the people at all of these other places just to make life miserable. Phew. Just kidding, but it seems like the more technologically advanced we go, the more backwards things get.
I purchased wireless headsets for my father for father's day. He was so happy. He goes to try to plug them into his plasma. No luck. There is only a digital audio out outlet and the headsets come with 'old' prongs.
Question 1: Are there any headsets out there that come with a digital cable instead of the prongs? If so, do any of them cost an amount that is not an arm and a leg?
Question 2: Is there any way to bypass the suggestion that I now have to buy a digital optical cable and a digital to analog converter which seem more expensive then the headsets, which were already pricey?
