Connecting Wireless Headphone to Home Theatre setup

by Alireza Rahnema / June 17, 2015 2:57 PM PDT

Would love some feedback on this:

I want to connect my Sennheiser RS175 to my home theatre system via its supplied optical cable.
Currently all my devices (XFINITY, Apple TV, Xbox) are connected to my a/v receiver (Pioneer vsx-52) via HDMI and an HDMI cable connects the TV (Panasonic VT30) to the receiver.
What would be the best way to connect the headphone? Should I use the tv's optical out option and connect that to the headphones? The receiver doesn't allow optical output since the input must also then be optical.

Any comments would be greatly appreciates

Clarification Request
Do I see this right?

I googled that model and in the manual it writes there is a headphone jack on the Pioneer. That might be best.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
