Question

Sony Wireless Headphones w/ 2 sources

by volvogirl / April 6, 2015 3:44 AM PDT

Helping my friend over the phone. She has Sony Wireless Headphone MDR-RF-985RK. She plugged in the Comcast Cable Audio to one input and the Roku box to the other input. Can you use 2 different input devices? There doesn't seem to a way to switch between them. Which one overrides? I'm thinking she will have to only have one thing plugged into the Transmitter at a time?

There are 2 ways to connect

There are actually 3 plugs in the back of the Wireless Transmitter. You can either plug in the red/white cables from a single headphone jack from the back of the TV

OR plug in a single stereo mini plug from the red/white audio out plugs in the back of the A/V component.

We got an extra cable and used both input methods. See Step 3

Actually your link says both inputs too

It says....

Inputs and Outputs
Audio In : Analog Phono Input (left/right), Analog Stereo Input mini jack (x1)

It has Analog input (left/right) AND 1 Sterio input mini jack. The 1x must just be for the mini jack.

I see that.

But still a single stereo input. I guess that's a stretch to the 1x input. Without having access to the device I can't see how they implemented this. There seems to be no way to select either but there are audio switches by the hundreds to solve this on Amazon, Newegg, etc.
