Have a simple setup with a complex(?) problem:
1. Comcast box: HDMI out to TV HDMI-1. Toslink audio runs to LG Home Theater amp for 5.1 speakers. All works fine.
2. LG amp has built-in BR DVD player. HDMI out to TV HDMI-2. Works fine......both video/audio. I switch TV input from HDMI-1 to HDMI-2.
Now I want to add a wireless headset to listen to either.
A. The comcast box is easy - has RCA out (cable to headset xmtr), and can turn off the LG amp/speakets.
B. BUT - the LG amp/player has NO analog out to listen to DVD thru headphones. The HDMI out is used going to TV. The Toslink connecter is used coming from the Comcast box. Unit doesn't have any other connectors other than RCA IN.
Have a Pana TV.......sigh, NO analog out. But it does have an optical/Toslink connector I'm not using.
Any ideas how to get the audio from the LG DVD to an analog A/B switch to select either Cable or DVD?
Here's what I'm thinking (??). Have my internal TV speakers off. Since DVD goes to TV via HDMI, could I use the optical/toslinkk connector at TV and get a optical to analog converter to go to A/B switch?
I can't be the only one that wants to listen to DVD via wireless headphones.......with no analog OUT connectors. Open for any fix for this.
