We just had direct tv whole house system installed with genie boxes in two of the rooms and found that they only had the digital output. Our new TV only has digital output as well and we needed wireless headphones because we are hard of hearing and didn't want to disturb the whole household which has different work schedules. I researched different forums for some ideas for hookup and then went to Radio Shack...armed with some knowledge... They were a big help and also offered to take it all back if not compatible. I bought the Rechargeable Wireless Headphones, Auvio Digital Audio Coax Cable, Digital-to-Analog Audio Adapter and rechargeable batteries. Hooked the headphones charging stand to the adapter, adapter to the digital audio jack on the direct tv genie and it works like a charm! I might add that I also connected the headphones to the TV digital output instead of the genie to see if it would work and it worked just as well. Since my husband also has hearing problems we ordered another set of the same headphones and they will work off the same setup so we can listen on our own headphones at the same time. Thanks to everyone's response to different forums I was able to get through the tech tangles with minimum stress! Thanks for the question!
