My TV has what it calls a "Digital Audio Out(Optical)" for audio but not headphone out. I am wondering if anyone knows of some sort of jack that can be used to allow me to plug headphones in this jack. If possible I would like to avoid any expensive surround set-ups with a headphone in jack. From googling I have seen this as a solution to my problem, but I would ofcourse like to save the money if it is possible by just buying some sort of converter jack. Thanks so much for any help you can provide.
you have to convert the Toslink optical out in two ways....the signal is optical and it must be converted back to analog electrical signals and the information is digital optical pulses, which must be read, decoded, and converted to analog audio streams.
Does the TV and a pair of good old fashioned red/white RCA output plugs ?
