Problem with h/p output in LG 47LW575S

Hello, I have LG 47LW575S and wireless headphones.

The problem is the following: whenever I connect h/p base to h/p output of my TV, the soung goes into the h/p output automatically and there's no way I can switch it back to TV speakers, while headphones are connected (or I just couldn't find this in the menu). This is a pain, because TV is hanged to the wall really tightly and I have to plug/unplug the minijack from the h/p base all the time. I was thinking of an extension cable (minijack male-female), but I'm afraid that the sound output will switch to it just the same way, even if the h/p base minijack is not connected to the extension cable.

Is there any way to solve this problem? Thanks!

It requires a tech to modify the TV.

There is no menu to change that feature. What I find some folk do is to get a sound bar and maybe a y-cable so they can run both the bar and headphones or some other solution.

Great advice given...

Hi Kagijagi,
Sorry I am late to this discussion, but you are not going to get anymore sound advice than that given by R. Proffitt!
Sounds like your wireless headphones require that you connect the base via the headphone output and what that is doing is directing your TV to output through that path to the headphones as long as the base is connected. You definitely will not get an option to change to any other output while the base is connected! I as unable to get any information on your TV since it is not a US model so I really can't be of more assistance to you than R. Proffitt already has been. You're right, as long as there is something in that headphone jack, you will not be able to switch back to the TV speakers. You would have to disconnect from the headphone output!^IV
