I just purchased an Onkyo HTS3500 (HT-R391 receiver with speakers). I need to hook-up a Seisenheimer wireless tv headphones into the system for my 75 year old dad. The plan is for him (hard of hearing) to listen to a NETFLIX movie with those wireless headphones while my mother listens through the Onkyo HTS3500 speakers. The problem (I noticed AFTER purchase and set-up) is that there are no "pre-outs" on the receiver. QUOTE, "it has NO Pre-Outs on the receiver- once you connect onto the HEADPHONES jack- it cancels the audio outputs of all speakers until removed from the HP jack". Is there any way I can add some sort of adapter box so I can tap from the receiver? If I hook it to the TV, ONLY regular cable tv can be heard and NOT NETFLIX. What would it take to resolve this besides buying another receiver?

You can use the VCR/DVR analog output with the understanding that all sources must also be connected with analog cables in addition to the HDMI cable.

How did you make out with the wireless headphones? I have the exact same problem with my dad who is hard of hearing. We had to hook up the headphones through the cable box so we can't listen to netflix which comes from the TV. (smart TV) Dan

Dan,

I have the same problem. Did you figure it out? If so, can you share that with me?
