Another simple (?) connection gone awry. Here's what I've got (all working fine):
1. Comcast box (Cisco RNG200) to Pana HDTV.......HDMI 1
2. Pana DVD player to TV......HDMI 2
3. TV to Sound Box.....DAC cable.
I can use the TV Input selector to go between cable box and DVD as needed.

Now the problem: Just bought a wireless headset - only has R/L audio jacks. I can plug it into the cable box (Audio Out) - works fine.
But.......if I want to watch a DVD, then have to uplug from cable box, and plut into DVD Audio Out.

Any ideas on how to rearrange the connections so I don't have to keep unplugging the headset regardless of what I'm watching? Unfortunately, my Pana HDTV doesn't have an Audio Out set of jacks.
Thx for any help or ideas.

You could get a remote control A/V switch- inputs DVD and cable box out headphones. Is a shame so few TV's don't have analog audio outs anymore.

What a simple solution........Thanks!! Duh - Been spending hours trying to re-wire everything and nothing worked. You're right - Pana didn't throw in $5 audio outs on a $1200 TV.....but at least a $5 switch-box solves my problem.
