How to Get Analog Headsets to Work with HDMI TV

Where we are renting, there is a RCA LED40G45RQ TV hooked up to Direct TV via HDMI. We have an old RCA infrared transmitter that transmits a signal to our pair of headsets. The IR transmitter hooks up to the TV with either RCA red and white plugs or a 3.5 mm jack. I've read that with that TV I need a digital to analog converter. What kind of description should I input to find the converter I want? Or can someone recommend a brand? The ones I've found seem to require a coax input. Thanks, Bill

Thank you for responding.

If at the link you provided, you scroll down, you will see a place to click to see the pdf of the owner's manual. But it is very, very hard to read.

If the "line out" you mention is for a coax cable, I looked carefully and did not see anything like that on the TV's back or side panel. May I assume I would need a jack that accepts a coax cable to use the adapter? Are there no digital-to-analog adapters that have an hdmi-in or 3.5mm capability?

Poor documentation means poor answers.

OK, you asked if there is some COAX TO ANALOG. Sure.

There's also HDMI AUDIO SPLITTERS but whether either have 3.5mm connections is hit and miss. Some might, most I saw have left right RCA jacks which take a small adapter.
