That out of the way, optical audio is digital and not volume controlled. This is done for reasons too long to get into here but it means that the volume control is done in the audio decoder, headsets or speakers.
-> Since this is how optical audio is supposed to be, there is no reason to solve it.
Now if you want volume control, you have to get that feature in your external devices.
I have a Sanyo DP32242 32" and I bought the Digital to Analog Audio Converter, cheap headphones, and an RCA Coaxial cable (pics below).
I have everything hooked up right I am certain, as I can turn down the TV and hear in my headphones. But I cannot control the volume in the headphones and it is way too loud.
I want to purchase bluetooth speaker(s) because I do not want to wear anything in or on my ears. But unless I can understand what this volume control issue is, then I don't want to purchase anything else (more expensive) yet.
I did read of a situation where the external device (headphones etc) had a volume control, but it still didn't turn down the volume.
My question is, have I got all I need to make this work, and does anyone here have the same or similar issue, and solved it?
Thanks in advance for any help.
PS Can't I do an "upload" attachment here? I can't get the URL to the photo of my parts off Flickr, no URLs.
