Connecting wireless headsets to samsung ps50c7000

I am trying to connect my turtle beach px5 headset to my samsung ps50c7000 tv and having no luck. I have plugged in through the optical output for the tv but the tv is not picking up the headsets. Any ideas?

In regards to "tv is not picking up the headsets"

That's not how I see such working. That is, your TV only outputs the audio, be it on analog or optical outputs and it is up to those devices to connect and produce sound. If the optical unit in the turtle beach does not understand the optical data then no sound. Try an analog connection next.

Hey barbershark,

Thanks for your message. But just so you know, if you want Samsung support, I support US products and customers. And from what I can tell, this model is for Australia. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) So while I can't help you directly, if you want Samsung help, here's the Samsung Australia portal for support on that product:

But we got a nice little community here that includes people from everywhere in the world, and they might have a few other suggestions to help you out.

Hope this helps you!
