Cut the cord and Yamaha surround sound problems

Maybe someone can help. Called Yamaha and they are closed for corporate holiday!
I have a V577 and an LG 4K. We recently got rid of cable and now just watch over the air TV. I am connected from my receiver to the TV through optical as I tried the ARC and got no sound. I did change the setting on both receiver and TV. My problem is that my husband who is close to deaf, uses a Sony wireless headset Before we cut the cord it was connected by optical. Receiver uses it now. We bought an optical splitter but no sound to headset. We tried the rca cables from headset to receiver...still nothing. Are we SOL? I did try the headset on another TV and it worked so it is not the headset. Anyone know any other solution other than my hiking up the volume and having me go deaf too? Thanks.
